Space_Apps_Challenge_Logo_node_full_image_292The International Space Apps Challenge is an international mass collaboration focused on space exploration that takes place over 48-hours in cities around the world. The event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to address global needs applicable to both life on Earth and life in space. This year we have over 25 challenges in four areas: Earth, Outer Space, Humans and Robotics. NASA is leading this global collaboration along with a number of government collaborators and over 100 local organizing teams across the globe.

The Oakland iteration will be held at the Sudo Room community creative space in Downtown Oakland. Whether you’re a designer, engineer, writer, project manager, or jazzed-up space nerd, we want you to bring your enthusiasm to creating solutions to some of NASA’s challenges in this year’s hackathon. Anyone and everyone is welcome, regardless of skill level or background – just bring your brain, laptop, and passion for space. The very best teams (that create the very best solutions) are those that are diverse. So don’t shy away because you think you aren’t technical enough – we want you and your amazing ideas!
