2019 Challenge Theme

Each year the Space Apps Global Organizing team puts forth a series of challenges. Teams of participants at Space Apps locations around the world work together to devise creative and innovative solutions to these challenges.

Space Apps projects don’t have to be apps and you don’t need to be a programmer to participate. Participants will collaborate to build open-source software, hardware, data visualization, and citizen science platform solutions aimed at addressing global challenges. We invite anyone with an interest in Space Apps and its mission to join. Teams need people of diverse skillsets — project managers, designers, artists, educators, writers, and anyone who wants to make a difference and address the challenges posed. You can contribute! In fact, most teams will benefit from having non-programmers working with them.
