Every year, NASA commissions a global (Over 12,500 people from 130 countries participated in 2015) hackathon called International Space Apps Challenge (ISAC).This is the third year the Boston/Cambridge location joins this largest hackathon in the world, and it will take place on April 23rd and 24th, 2016. The themes for the challenges of this year are: Aeronautics, Earth, Space Station, Journey to Mars, Solar System and Beyond, and Space Technology.
Collaboration with JapanBoston/Cambridge location, however, offers an even more unique and exciting experience; forming “Mix Team” with participants from ISAC Tokyo,  Global Teamwork Lab, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, The University of Tokyo in Japan!  Please refer to photo and reports from NASA ISAC 2015.
The “Mixed Team” will remotely collaborate via the internet throughout the hackathon.  Last year, we had a huge success, one of the “Mixed Team” had become a top 5 global finalist in the NASA-facilitated global competition which comes after the local elimination process.  If you are interested in creating new things and working with awesome peers from Japan, this truly is a one of a kind experience.
Of course, if you want to organize a team within the Boston/Cambridge location, that works too! Apply with your friends and go!
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, English/Japanese translators... are all welcome!
This year, we are excited to be collaborating with Boston Children’s Museum, and the winning team’s project will be presented at their 1st annual Boston Mini Maker Faire on July 23, 2016. Check out our event here <> and register now for the info-session!(strongly recommended if you are participating in mixed teams)
