NASA ISAC (hackathon) - Invitation to apply to Japan/Boston mix team !

Hi all,

Invitation from! Please contact to Eriko directly if you have any question on this event! Happy hackathon!


Every year, NASA commissions a global (more than 125 cities from 6 continents) hackathon called International Space Apps Challenge (ISAC). This is the second year the Boston/Cambridge location joins this largest hackathon in the world; it will take place at hack/reduce on the April 11th and 12th. The themes for this years’ challenges are: Earth, Space, Humans, and Robotics.

The Boston/Cambridge location, however, offers an even more unique and exciting experience -- forming mix-teams with participants from the various locations in Japan! Mix-team participants in the Boston/Cambridge location will remotely collaborate, via the Internet, with their peers from Tokyo, Yamaguchi, and Kumamoto locations on projects. The “mix-team” was experimentally created for the first time last year, and was a huge success -- one of the mixed teams was among the top 5 global finalists in the NASA-facilitated global judging, which comes after the competition.

Click here for more details on the last years’ mix-teams. If you are interested in creating new things and working with awesome peers from Japan, this truly one of a kind experience is for you. We love having a wide range of talent; subject matter experts, software/hardware engineers, data scientists, UI/UX and web designers, product managers, project managers, Japanese translators... are all welcome!

Important dates for mix team -> Ideathon with attendee in Japan and Boston - 3/21 Saturday 19:30 EST / 3/22 9:30 JST ~  and hackathon on 4/11  ~ 4/12 !!

Of course, if you want to organize a team within the Boston/Cambridge location, that works too! Apply with your friends and go!

Please apply now (no entry fee -- this is a NASA event!)  to secure your spot:

For further inquiry, please email [address removed].

We hope you’ll join us and be a part of pioneering the future!
