2013_04_20_spaceappsThe Winnipeg International Space Apps Challenge will take place on April 20-21, 2013 at the University of Manitoba. In this event, UMSATS is partnering with NASA to participate in a 48hr hackathon to solve problems with people from all over the world. Go to http://spaceapps.umsats.ca for details.

There are four major categories of challenges:

  • Software – APIs, databases, and other tools for managing data collected from space
  • Open Hardware – technologies for space exploration
  • Citizen Science – why we explore space presentations
  • Data Visualization – visualizing data already collected by others

 

This event is free and open to anyone ages 16+. The top two solutions will receive prizes and be entered into the worldwide competition where they will be judged by a panel of NASA judges.
