Would you like to participate in NASA's Space Apps Hackathon?

The SFU SpaceApps hackathon is part of a larger NASA innovation and hackathon initiative to bring bright and creative minds together to solve science problems in space, which have great benefits for life on Earth. We're looking for all types of creative minds and geeky thinkers, and hoping that we can create some great ideas for technology, earth science, and space science.

All are welcome and no coding background is required. The most important thing is bringing an avid interest in space, technology, earth science, astronomy, or several other cool areas of science.  

Saturday–Sunday, April 23–24, 2016
Bennett Library Research Commons, 7th floor
Simon Fraser University, Burnaby campus
