The NASA International Space Apps Challenge is an international mass
collaboration focused on space exploration that takes place over
48-hours in cities around the world. The event will run over a 48 hour
period from 20-21 April 2013 and embraces collaborative problem solving
with the goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to address
global needs applicable to both life on Earth and life in space. NASA is
leading this global collaboration along with a number of additional
government collaborators and 100+ local partner organizations.


QUT is hosting the Brisbane event in the new Science and Engineering
Centre. This venue epitomises all that the International Space Apps
Challenge is about; transparency, participation, collaboration and open
data. For those in and around the Brisbane area, it should prove to be a
fantastic event full of learning, coding, sharing, designing and
creating! The idea of a Challenge is so compelling because it
acknowledges the fact that the world is facing serious challenges - and
that we all have to work together to approach them. While there are
prizes offered for great solutions, the main challenge we focus on is
enabling 48 hours of highly engaged collaboration- and discovering what
we can create when that happens.


With over 50 challenge ideas to choose from, they are designed to serve
as an inspiration for your work and as a platform for the global
community to work together. For that reason, we encourage you to join
with others around the world during the event to create a collaborative


Challenge Snapshot:


"No Delays" Air Traffic Management

Create a crowd-sourced gaming and technology development platform to
evolve the best ideas for future air traffic management

Curiosity at Home

Foster a connection between citizens and the Mars rover through
software, visualizations, or an app. 


Lego Rovers

Design a remotely operation system to control a Lego Robot through a
computer or smartphone. 


QUT welcomes participants with all types of skills, including coding,
developing, designing, creating ideas and engineering to name a few.
Most importantly, if you have a passion for science, technology and
creating, then this is for you!
