NASA has opened applications for Space Apps Nigeria 2015, its hackathon designed to bring together innovators from all backgrounds to proffer solutions to earth/space challenges. The event is scheduled to hold in Nigeria from April 16-19, 2015; in Lagos, Calabar and Ilorin.

The international space apps challenge is an event that embraces collaborative problem solving with the goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to address global needs that are applicable to life on earth and in space.

“The idea of a Challenge is so compelling because it acknowledges the fact that the world is facing serious challenges – and that we all have to work together to approach them. While there local hosts may offer prizes and the global award includes an opportunity to attend a NASA launch, the main challenge we focus on is enabling 48 hours of highly engaged collaboration- and discovering what we can create when that happens,” NASA says on its website.

This year’s event presents 25 challenges that focus on areas such as earth, outer space, humans and robotics; the event will also also draw in on Women-in-Technology.

Potential applicants may apply here or get more information about the event from their official website.
