Competing with new app ideas


The U.S. Space and Rocket Center is hosting the International Space Apps challenge.

The event is a hackathon where coders, designers, builders, and anyone else can come up with ideas and create apps. Space Apps is bringing people together regardless of their skill level. 

Last year, the event had over 25,000 participants across 6 continents.

There are two divisions, high school and college/professional. Teams are competing for a share of $10,000.

Participants can be mentored by local Subject Matter Experts giving anyone the opportunity to learn new skills.

The event is free and open to the public, so join Urban Engine for the International NASA Space Apps Challenge in Huntsville on October 19-21.
