NASA Space Apps Challenge takes off in The Biggest Little City

Post Date:04/08/2014 5:07 PM
In March, Reno was selected by NASA as one of 80 host cities around the world for the 2014 International Space Apps Challenge. Starting tomorrow, area software developers and programmers will begin their “attack” on five areas — human space flight, technology in space, robotics, asteroids and Earth watch — as part of the Biggest Little Space Apps Challenge hackathon.

The City of Reno is a sponsor of the event, which launches on Wednesday, April 9 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Reno Collective in downtown Reno. There will be a kickoff happy hour, challenge review, team formation and discussion of the plan for the two-day main event.

The main event will take place at the DeLaMare Science and Engineering Library on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. On Saturday, April 12, there will be hacking from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. This will resume from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 13. From 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, projects will be presented and judged.
