NASA Space Apps Challenge
On April 29-30, the NASA SpaceApp Challenge will take place in many locations world-wide. In Saudi Arabia, the event will run on April 28-29 (with registration on April 26) because of the difference in the weekend.
On April 28, Bootcamps will be livestreamed from NYC, NY and Palo Alto California, to prepare participants (some of the past speakers are outstanding). It is possible to participate virtually. The stories from prior instances of the challenge are exhilarating.- e.g., 2016. NASA has identified 5 challenge categories for 2017 : 1. The Earth and Us, 2. Planetary Blues, 3. Warning! Danger Ahead!, 4. Our Ecological Neighborhood, 5. Ideate and Create!
