Over the course of the coming days, volunteers all around the world are designing innovative solutions to challenges humanity faces both on earth and in space. In each of the 25 locations where the International Space Apps Challenge is taking place, a local panel of judges will select the top solutions developed at their local event.
We are excited to announce that thanks to new partners Innovation Endeavors and Talenthouse the solutions submitted for the International Space Apps Challenge around the world, will now be judged at the global level as well—and we want your input!
Each city will nominate two projects for judging globally. Talenthouse will help the nominees get their solutions up online to the Innovation Challenge platform, along with a two-minute video introducing their project.
Once projects are posted, social voting begins! Between May 5th and May 12th, we invite you to visit the Innovation Challenge platform, check out the projects, comment, discuss, share some encouragement and pick your favorites.
Between May12th and May 16th, our global partners and a team of advisors, entrepreneurs and partner investors from the Innovation community, will provide feedback and encouragement, and cast their vote on the Innovation Challenge platform. A panel of 6 select judges from the Innovation community will review each project and, taking into account the public feedback, select a winner in each Space Apps Challenge category: Software, Open Hardware, Citizen Science and Data Visualization in addition to a People’s Choice award.
On May 17th, Innovation Endeavors will host an awards ceremony and reception announcing the global winners of the International Space Apps Challenge.
Join us in selecting the most exciting and innovative solutions to come out of the International Space Apps Challenge across the globe.
