Have you ever wanted to attend NASA’s Rocket Launch at the NASA Kennedy Space Centre in Florida? Now is your chance.

UWA is supporting the NASA Space Apps Hackathon together with hosts CORE and the Perth innovation community including Space Hub Perth, Unearthed and Spacecubed.

Students, staff and researchers are invited to attend this free event.  You will work with technologists, scientists, designers and entrepreneurs to develop answers for challenges on Earth and Space.

The International Space Apps Challenge is NASA’s program to inspire global citizens to innovate, using NASA’s open data to help solve relevant mission challenges.

The two-day event brings citizens together regardless of their background or skill, and they can contribute to open source solutions that have immediate value to NASA and the global community.

Participants will tackle challenges using robotics, data visualisation, hardware and design. The competition inspires people to learn and create using stories, code, design and ideas.

There is something for everyone, so innovators and hackathon novices are encouraged to join our thriving tech community to drive capability and new enterprise in the space sector.


Local Prizes will be awarded following final pitches on the last day.

The two winning projects will be nominated from Perth to the international challenge, judged by NASA executives.  NASA Space Apps will announce the global champion of each category a few weeks after the event and the winning teams will be invited to attend the upcoming NASA’s Rocket Launch in Florida. (Travel costs are not included).
