NASA Space Apps Challenge 2017 (Dublin)
Every year NASA release a set of challenges and datasets related to real Space missions and host a global competition to find new innovative ideas to solve these problems. Solutions to the challenges leverage new methods and technologies including open-source software, 3D printing, drones, VR, AR, and machine learning.
This event is designed for engineers, designers, data scientists, makers, storytellers, and ..... you! :)
Last year more than 15,000 participants took part from over 160 cities across the Globe, over the same weekend. Several local teams from Ireland went forward to compete in the final Global round: www.siliconrepublic.com/machines/3-winners-of-nasa-space-apps-challenge-hackathon-revealed
The theme of this year's challenges set by NASA will be 'Earth' and we are proud to present the competition again in Dublin, in collaboration with our hosts, sponsors and patrons. This year's challenges and Global Prizes will be announced shortly.
Note: all event participants must be aged 18 years or older.
