On the weekend of April 28-30, 2017, developers, makers, engineers and entrepreneurs will take on NASA-designed challenges, creating solutions that range from silly to serious, fantastical to feasible. Build a team, pick a challenge, and leverage your access to an extraordinary roster of mentors featuring past and present astronauts, aerospace engineers, and designers.

Last year's Space Apps was an incredible year with the Toronto team “Kid on the Moon” winning most inspirational project at the global competition.

The team got invited down to Cape Canaveral to watch the Osiris-Rex mission launch to the asteroid Bennu alongside other winning teams from around the world. You can read more about it here. Congratulations to yet another Canadian winning team. We hope we can once again build on the incredible success Toronto brings to the world stage for 2017.

Running annually since 2012, the International Space Apps Challenge brings coders, designers, entrepreneurs and makers together from across the globe to take on a series of challenges developed by NASA. Last year, more than 15409 hackers participated from 161 cities in 61 countries, creating over 1300 projects! During the intense 48-hour hackathon, teams will form and produce solutions that leverage NASA's extensive spacecraft, celestial and science data. Together, we'll make space and Earth more accessible, visual and fun to explore.
