Challenges

There are two types of challenges that will be posted for the SpaceApps Challenge. The first is NASA challenges, which are the official challenges that could advance participants to global judging. The second is community challenges, which are provided by anyone in the community who wants to suggest topics to innovate with. Solutions to both challenges will make participants eligible to win our cash and local prizes, however only solutions to NASA challenges will be considered for further judging and awards at the global level.

Community Challenges

Here are the submissions we've received for community challenges. Teams who build solutions to these challenges are eligible for cash and other local prizes, but are not eligible to advance to further NASA judging nor awards at a global level.
