Learn more about the 2021 hackathon, meet the local lead team, connect with fellow challengers, and hear from some exciting guest speakers!

Space Hub Perth and CORE Innovation Hub are hosting this year’s virtual NASA International Space Apps Challenge. This is a global virtual hackathon to be held on the weekend of 2- 3 October 2021 . Last year, it was held in 140+ countries, with 26,000+ participants and 3,800+ teams. The event takes a collaborative approach to problem solving where teams aim to produce solutions to NASA defined challenges that we currently face here on Earth and in space.

Confirmed panellists on the night include:

Lisa Fletcher, Senior Service and Experience Designer – Member Centred Program, RAC (The NASA Space Apps Challenge 2020 winner)

David Gozzard, Forrest Fellow, ICRAR (International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research)

Stuart Buchan, Spacecraft Engineer, Binar Space Program

Fergus Downey, PhD Student and Engineer for the Space Science and Technology Center, Curtin University

Who can participate at the hackathon on Oct 2-3?

Anyone. Absolutely ANYONE! Space is for everyone. If you have a background or are just interested in business, entrepreneurship, science, art, history, engineering, design, law, technology, mathematics, education, health, sports, performing arts, hospitality, automotive mechanics or many other areas, then you’re perfect for this hackathon. Have you studied at Uni? Or maybe you’ve never studied? No problem. Are you still at school? Great. Are you working? Or maybe you’re not working? It doesn’t matter. And no, you don’t have to know how to code, though you can if you want to. It’s amazing what ideas and solutions people from various backgrounds come up with.

Join our Info Night on Monday 20th September to find out more about the event, connect with fellow challengers and hear from our guest speakers for a very insightful panel discussion!
