Tampa Hackerspace is excited to bring the NASA Space Apps Challenge Hackathon back to Tampa for a second year! This is an international hackathon presented by NASA that occurs over 48 hours in cities around the world. Join us to share ideas and engage with open data to address real-world problems, on Earth and in space. Work alone or with a team to solve challenges that could help change the world. Check back here for event updates.

Don't let the name fool you... it's not just about apps! Tackle a challenge using robotics, data visualization, hardware, design and many other specialties!
