NASA's International Space Apps Challenge Opening Reception
Are you a space geek? This event will be a great opportunity
to meet some folks from NASA, including NASA Deputy CIO Deborah Diaz, Nick
Skytland Program Manager on the NASA’s Open Innovation Program, and ...
probably one of their astronauts. Along with Derrick Pitts, Chief Astronomer at
the Franklin Institute, they will join us to kick off the NASA's International
Space Apps Challenge, a two-day civic hackathon that will gather citizens from
round the world to work together to solve current challenges relevant to both
space exploration and science. The hackathon will be held at The ExCITE Center
at Drexel University on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22. Refreshments
and food will be served for everybody's enjoyment.
