What is NASA Space Apps Challenge



Space Apps 2021 will be coming to you on October 2-3, 2021. We’re excited to embark with you on this journey!

This page contains information relevant to ALL participants - no matter which location you’re registered for. To see the particular details for your local virtual event, please select the “Event Info” tab above. That page is important because your location may be hosting special events, offering local awards, or providing additional opportunities that are not reflected on this page or in our other materials. So, make sure you’re up-to-date!


In the interest of our global community’s continued health and safety, this year’s hackathon will be an all-virtual event. Thus, all local events will be moved online. While we hope to have in-person events in the future, we hope that this virtual environment provides new opportunities to collaborate across time and space!

Check out Our Resources

  • To celebrate our tenth annual event, our theme for Space Apps 2021 is the “The Power of Ten.” Click here to read more about the history of Space Apps and how we are celebrating this important milestone.
  • As you begin your Space Apps journey, the best resource for you to read is the 2021 Participant FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions).
  • Before the hackathon begins, detailed guides (on chat, team formation, project submission, and judging and awards) will be posted on the Space Apps resources page and on your user dashboard under "Materials.”

Register for a Location

  • You will not be able to participate in the hackathon until you have registered for a location. Please click the "Register Now" button on this page to register for this location or to create a Space Apps account (if you do not already have one).
  • If there is a location for your city or for a city near you, please register for that location. (Locations will be added through early September, so please check back for your location.)
  • If you do not see a local event for your city, please join the Universal Event. It is for everyone who is not affiliated with a location. You will be able to meet other people joining the Universal Event and form teams! (If a location near you is added at a later date, you may change your location.)
  • You can change your location at any time in your user dashboard, once you have created an account. Select "Change Location."
  • Registration will be open through the end of the hackathon. However, we encourage you to create an account and register for a location far in advance to ensure that you get plugged into the local community and that you can take full advantage that will open before the hackathon begins, such as chat and team formation.

Contact your Local Lead

Each location page contains contact information for the “Local Leads” -- the Space Apps volunteers from your location who will be organizing virtual gatherings for your location and providing support to participants both prior to and during the hackathon. The Universal Event also has a Local Lead. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them if you have questions!

Save the Dates

The hackathon will begin Saturday, October 2 at 9:00 AM (local time) and end on Sunday, October 3 at 11:59 PM (local time). But there are other important milestones before then, such as the release of challenges and virtual bootcamp videos, as well as the opening of chat and team formation. See the Participant FAQ for all of the important dates.

Recruit Friends

We encourage you to invite your friends along! Typical Space Apps teams have 2-6 participants (the limit is 6 members per team). Space Apps is all about collaboration and the most successful teams are often ones with a diverse set of skills and expertise -- coding, storytelling, creativity, data, science, engineering, technology, and more.

Connect with the Community

Follow Space Apps on TwitterInstagramFacebook, and YouTube to receive the latest announcements.

Have additional questions?

If you are unable to find answers to your questions in our resources or from your Local Lead, please email us as We will update this page as additional information and features are available.
