We are delighted to announce that the NASA Space Apps Challenge has been officially launched for the first time in Egypt. Organized by Spaceapps Cairo and IEEE Egypt Section
The Space Apps Challenge is a two-day hackathon where teams of technologists, scientists, designers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, developers and students across the globe collaborate and engage with publicly available data to design innovative solutions for global challenges.
NASA is leading this global collaboration along with a number of additional government collaborators.
This year, Cairo is part of the global challenge with 125 other cities around the world
Our event will include scientists, entrepreneurs, data analysis experts, developers, designers and students from all over Egypt, we believe we could make Egypt listed in the winners of 2015.
200 Participants from Egypt will formulate 40 teams and tackle posted challenges in contentious 48 hours competition at the Nile University on 11-12 April.
Local winners will be nominated for global finals, judging done by NASA’s panel and winners will be entitled to attend a NASA launch event.
We are calling for participants, mentors, judges and sponsors. if you think you can help in making it a successful event, visit us at www.spaceappscairo.com/
