A new edition of Nasa Space Apps Challenge is coming to Turin too. Part of the Open Governement Partnership international initiative, the Nasa International Space Apps Challenge is an international hackathon. It will take place in many different cities all over the world between the 19 and the 21 October 2018, and it will last 48 hours. The Space Apps is an annual event with the aim of bringing people with different skills together, in order to solve some challenges regarding Planet Earth and Space.

Do not let the name trick you: this is not just about applications! The Space Apps calls everybody to solve the Space challenges using different skills and disciplines: robotics, data visualization, aeronautics, design, hardware, software, coding and much more. Do you want to use your skills to realize a project? Sign up!

Show us your problem-solving skills, use your expertise but above all bring your own ideas: you could be the winner of the Nasa Space Apps Challenge!

 

THEME

🌍🚀  The announced theme for this new edition is: Earth & Space! 🌍 🚀

This year's theme offers the opportunity of bringing to life projects for many different applications, inviting to be curious about our planet and beyond. Whether you're focused on Space - like FractalNet solution, winner of the Best Mission Concept 2016, a glove austronauts can wear in subterrenean environments - or on the life on Earth - like the winning solution of the Best Use of Data prize of Lemon Py in 2017, an app to help Buenos Aires' citizens to minimize their exposition to pollens using data about the trees in the city - we're looking forward to seeing what innovative and creative ideas will be realized this year. Space Apps 2018 is your chance to experiment and explore solutions to the biggest challenges of our universe!

OPEN DATA

Our planet is a complex and dynamic system which still has a lot of mysteries. During the whole year, Nasa tries to find out and explain more about what concerns it, like the oceans, different soils and all kinds of living creatures. This way, thanks to its infrastractures, Nasa collects high-quality data regarding all parts of the planet, with the aim of telling us more about the world we live in, while predicting Eath's future processes too. If you want to join this scientific exploration, Nasa let all the participants use its database: it's up to you now trying to solve the challenges related to the secrets of our planet.
