Our NASA Space Apps inaugural Ottawa event is only days away now, and there’s lots going on.
NASA Space Apps is:
“…an international hackathon that occurs over 48 hours in cities around the world. Citizens join together to share ideas and engage with open data to address real-world problems, on Earth and in space…They work alone or with a team to solve challenges that could help change the world.” (NASA Space Apps Challenge website)
We’ve already held our Bootcamp / Yuri’s Night evening, we have the support of so many great sponsors, we’re fully booked, and now we’re featured in the Ottawa Business Journal, “NASA’s International Space Apps Hackathon Touches Down in Ottawa“.
This year’s overall theme is “Earth” (meaning Earth Sciences), and the categories are:
- Ideate & Create!
- Our Ecological Neighbourhood
- Warning! Danger Ahead!
- Planetary Blues
- The Earth and Us
T-8 Days to launch.
