The NASA International Space Apps Challenge (Space Apps) is an international hackathon for coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, technologists, and others in cities around the world, where teams engage in the NASA free and open data to address real-world problems on Earth and in space. These problems include but are not limited to space flight, space exploration, space pollution, ocean pollution, carbon emissions, climate change, ice meltage and so much more. Check out this year’s challenge summaries here: https://2021.spaceappschallenge.org/challenges/
For one weekend each October, (October 2nd - 3rd) participants from around the world come together over a 48 hour period to solve challenges submitted by NASA personnel. Space Apps introduces problem-solvers worldwide to NASA's free and open data.
By using NASA data to solve each year's challenges, Space Apps teams learn about NASA's data, and share in creation and application of the knowledge that results. Space Apps also inspires collaboration, creativity and critical thinking.
This Year's Event
-Is 100% Virtual
-The NYC Local Event is putting on a globally livestreamed day of talks having to do with data, space, technology, and everything in between.
Highlights from the 2020 Hackathon:
-5 Space Agencies (NASA, CSA, CNES, JAXA, ESA)
-26,000+ Registered Participants of all ages
-251 Local Events plus the Universal Event
-Nearly 150 Countries/Territories
-2,300 Project Submissions
We are looking for speakers who can talk either about what they are currently working on or a product that could be leveraged during the hackathon. We'd love for these talks to be either Space, Planet Earth, or Technology based.
Audience: All Ages
Audience size: Potential 30,000+
Will be a zoom call that will be livestreamed to all 400 locations around the world.
Ideally I'd like to see the following:
-A short paragraph describing your talk
-Whether you'd like 30 mins or 60 minutes
-A brief bio for yourself
-A headshot (optional)
