NASA Space Apps Challenge 2023 Event Page : http://spaceappsboston.org/
NASA International Space App Challenge (ISAC) is an international mass collaborative hackathon focused on space exploration that takes place over 48-hours in cities around the world. Binnovative will once again be host to this year’s Boston location for the challenge, and we look forward to seeing what the bright minds of our community can come up with this time!
2023 is the 10th anniversary that NASA ISAC is held in Boston! To participate in our virtually hosted event, form your own team with your friends. Please make sure that all of your team members register. The event provides an opportunity for all participants to improve coding skills, get involved in Boston’s hackathon community, cultivate team collaboration skills, and… have a blast with your teammates!!
This event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source solutions which are applicable to both life on Earth and life in space. NASA expects to see a wide scope of talents: programmers, designers, artists, engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, developers, and more. Anyone with an eye towards creativity and the motivation to make those ideas a reality is welcome!
ISAC Boston 2022, second year winner of ISAC Global Winner in Art and Technology category.
Team Earth, Wind and Flare developed an interactive tool to represent data from the Parker Solar Probe to enable us to learn more about solar effects (aka space weather). The team’s submission, “Where you can Uncover the Invisible”, was an Internet of Things (IoT) device that publicizes space weather and its impacts on the Earth in an interactive and artistic way. They considered key elements for the device including a matrix board to display space and Earth weather, how to integrate data from multiple sources, and what visual and acoustic effects would be the most engaging.

Team Jimmy in the box was WOW-ed by how the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) uses origami-like folding and unfolding for its launch and deployment. Using their diverse skills and experience, this project builds computerized origami models for JWST in order to showcase its amazing design and “satisfying” deployment steps.
