Welcome to NASA Space Apps Challenge 2017 in Cluj-Napoca!
For the second year in a row, Cluj-Napoca will take part in the largest global hackathon! Join us on April 29-30 for the 2017 International Space Apps Challenge!
What is NASA Space Apps Challenge?
Space Apps is a 48 hours global hackathon, engaging thousands of problem solvers each year across the globe. The event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to address global needs applicable to both life on Earth and life in space.
Last year over 15,000 participants in 161 cities from 61 countries around the world worked together in teams during the 48-hour sprint to develop over 1300 projects.
Coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, technologists, students, engineers, entrepreneurs, artists, and problem solvers of all types, everyone enthusiastic about space, this event is for you!
Here are some of the reasons why you should participate. Come Join in this Collaborative, Problem-Solving, Open Innovation Competition!
What are we going to do this year?
This year's five categories of challenges are The Earth and Us, Planetary Blues, Warning! Danger Ahead!, Our Ecological Neighborhood and Ideate & Create!. A preview of the challenges can be found on the Space Apps blog.
Gather a team of people with a diverse background, choose your challenge and register. Over 48 hours you work together to develop an innovative solution to your challenge (be it a website, a mobile app, a concept or a hardware prototype). Your team will present the solution to an audience and a jury that will be announced soon. The best solutions will then compete on a global level!
The event is free and open to the public. Participation is limited to a number of 100 participants so make sure to sign up once registration opens.
Please bring your laptop and charger, mouse and mousepad, notebook, pen and pencils, comfortable clothes, headphones and music, glasses and medication if necessary, whatever else you might need to complete your project including installed software. Optionally you can bring an extension cord and a Wi-Fi dongle.
