NASA SPACE APPS CHALLENGE 2020 to be Held Online


Now in its 9th year, Space Apps is an international hackathon for coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, technologists, and others in cities around the world, where teams engage with the NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s free and open data to address real-world problems on Earth and in space. Space Apps 2019 included over 29,000 participants at 225 events in 71 countries.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of our global community’s health and safety, NASA and the Space Apps Global Organizing Team have made the decision to make this year’s hackathon an all-virtual (online) event.

Regardless of when teams form, participants are not permitted to start working on their solutions until the Space Apps event begins.

Yes, the working language is English, and if your project wins, it will be considered for the Global Awards.

How to participate?

The registration deadline is 23:59 on September 30, 2020.

Special Prize for ISU Students
