The NASA International Space Apps Challenge is an international hackathon that allows participants a chance to experience, experiment and explore solutions to our universe's biggest challenges!
Space Apps introduces problem-solvers to NASA’s free and open data. NASA missions to Earth, our Sun and solar system, and out into the universe – all gather data in pursuit of new knowledge, to expand our understanding through new scientific discoveries, and to help us to improve life on Earth. By using NASA data to solve each year’s challenges, Space Apps teams learn about NASA’s data, and share in the creation and application of the knowledge that results.
Space Apps encourages collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.  The challenges foster interest in Earth and Space Science and Exploration and encourages the growth and diversity of the next generation of scientists, technologists, designers and engineers.
