This year Winona State has the opportunity to host the NASA International Space Apps Challenge. This is a two-day event to inspire makers, tinkerers, artists, and engineers to work together to find innovative solutions to challenges laid out by NASA engineers using NASA-generated data about space and the earth. This year the theme will be Earth science.
Organizers are seeking participants in the event, experts in fields to facilitate others, presenters who can extoll the virtues of collaboration and innovation, or share relevant expertise. Nobody is required to be present for the entire duration of the event.
If you have a friend, relative, co-worker who you think would be interested in participating as either a member of a team or a mentor for other teams, please share this opportunity with them.
All are invited to participate; artists, engineers, data analysts, designers, electronics and software hackers, storytellers, all ages and all skill levels are encouraged.
There will be food and prizes!
The event will be held at Maxwell Hall TLT Suite (Max 130) on Saturday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Sunday, April 30, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
A Pre-Event Data Bootcamp will be held on Friday, April 28, at 5:30 p.m., where attendees can learn how to make use of NASA data.
