2nd Part - First-Ever Space Apps Challenge

Join us on Saturday, April 29th - Sunday, April 30th, 2017 for the 1st NASA Space Apps Challenge in Huntsville!

What's this all about? We're going to spend 32 hours coming up with innovative ideas that could change the world, all while having fun and collaborating with amazing, passionate people.

The event will be held at Huntsville STEAM Works (http://www.al.com/business/index.ssf/2017/02/huntsville_steam_works_acquire.html) inside Lowe Mill (https://goo.gl/maps/DLFMCcZwVsu). Huntsville STEAM Works is the evolution of MindGear Labs - a brand new 6,000 sq/ft hardware prototyping lab. The venue's machinery, great WiFi, and ample parking add up to an ideal location to spend a weekend making cool stuff. Just bring your brain, laptop, and passion for problem solving.

Feel free to either join a challenge with fellow HackBama team members, or find any other team working on a project that interests you. Make new friends and invite them to our meetup, solve real-world challenges, or just have fun!

At the end of the first day (Sat), you can go home or sleep over at the location. Bring sleeping bags!
