What is Space Apps Challenge?

NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge takes place each year over the course of 48 hours to spark innovation on NASA challenges that benefit missions in space and life on Earth.

  • Build a team
  • Pick your challenge from NASA’s missions or bring your own
  • Hack away! 

You have two days to build your project and put it before the judges.

Winners that advance to NASA’s global judging round have a shot at an exclusive tour of Kennedy Space Center!
