NASA’s Space Apps Challenge is an international hackathon for coders, scientists, engineers, storytellers, technologists, and students.
The World Needs Your Ideas
Innovators in cities around the world compete over the course of a weekend to engage with NASA’s open data to address real-world problems on Earth and in space to create change for social impact. International Finalists are selected from over thousands of participants in over 200 events in 75 countries globally.
Space Apps introduces problem-solvers worldwide to NASA’s free and open data. NASA missions to Earth, our Sun and solar system, and out into the universe – all gather data in pursuit of new knowledge, to expand our understanding through new scientific discoveries, and to help us to improve life on Earth. By using NASA data to solve each year’s challenges, Space Apps teams learn about NASA’s data, and share in the creation and application of the knowledge that results.
Space Apps inspires collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking, fosters interest in Earth and space science and exploration, and encourages the growth and diversity of the next generation of scientists, technologists, designers and engineers. Space Apps is managed by the Earth Science Division, Science Mission Directorate, at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC.
