WE REGRET THAT DUE TO INSUFFICIENT REGISTRATIONS THE EVENT AT THIS LOCATION HAS BEEN CANCELED.

REGISTRATION IN EARLY MARCH

The International Space Apps Challenge is a two-day technology development event during which citizens from around the world will work together to address current challenges relevant to both space exploration and social need.  At the event, individuals collaborate with others by forming teams focused on solving a particular challenge. The teams compete with other teams around the world (80 locations worldwide) to utilize publicly available space and data to design innovative “solutions” to a pre-determined series of global “challenges.”
