INNOVATE THE FUTURE OF SPACE!

 

The world biggest hackathon will take place on October 20-21. 2018 in Tunis hosted by the “Youth and Science” Association of Tunisia. Great challenges and an incredible experience!

Join us for the 2018 NASA Space Apps Challenge, a global hackathon in which teams work together to address challenges in Earth science and space exploration. Scientists, artists, programmers, students, makers, and anyone with a creative mindset is welcome to participate!

Two winning teams from each location will be nominated for global judging. Those teams will create a short video demo for their project, and judges from NASA will select a handful of global finalists from hundreds of submissions.

For
one week leading up to the hackathon, we will host a data bootcamp to introduce hackers to tools and technologies which will empower them in designing their projects. This bootcamp will be free for all and take place during a weeknight. We will also include talks from Earth and space scientsts to provide key insight into the science behind the challenges themselves.
 

During the Afternoon of Saturday, October 20th we will have our mandatory hacker orientation. Everyone participating in the hackathon will check in, set up all required software accounts, learn about the challenges, hear from our sponsors and mentors about the support available during the weekend, form teams, get ready for our hacakthon kickoff, and then get to hacking! dinner will also be served.

Organizers and volunteers will be on hand to assist with any questions and help with team placement. Technology and science mentors will also be available in person and virtually to float between teams and answer any questions.

Sunday, October 21st
we have breakfast and wrap up our projects. Project submission is at noon, followed by lunch. Team demos will start shortly after lunch, will be globally livestreamed, and is open for friends and family to attend (we will send out a separate form for adding people to the guest list for demos).

Around 5pm we will conclude the demos, select sponsors will present their specially branded awards, and our judges will announce the hackathon winners!

Participants under the age of 13 require adult supervision for the entirety of the hackathon.
