The annual International Space Apps Challenge is a weekend-long hackathon that invites programmers, designers, communicators, business gurus and other creative minds to tackle various earthly challenges using space data. The Challenge has been organized in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, four times in a row.
Tackle a challenge using robotics, data visualization, hardware, design and many other specialties! Inspire each other while you learn and create using stories, code, design and, most importantly of all, YOUR ideas. Show us your problem-solving skills and share your talents with the world!
