After last year’s success, we are delighted to announce that another NASA Space Apps Challenge is coming to C4DI in Hull this year.

Whether you're a coder, designer, storyteller, creative, technologist or just someone who thinks space is cool we would love you to come along. Have a go at tackling some problems, creating some new tech or just generally have a fun time. Who knows, maybe you’ll stumble across the world’s next great start-up idea!

NASA Space Apps Challenge is happening on 20th– 21st October right here at Hull’s own C4DI. We want to invite any local companies that have a group of people wanting to take on the challenge, to come along to this great local event. Or if you like the sound of attempting to build something extraordinary and have a couple of friends who might be able to help you out, then get involved! 

Companies entering will have a good opportunity for team building, a chance for your colleagues to learn new skills that they can bring back to your organisation. This will be a way to meet talented students that you may wish to hire in the future. Any companies entering a team of 3 or more individuals will also have the opportunity to be associated with this prestigious event by being listed as a supporter.

Students are very welcome to participate, and the UOH is offering a partial ticket refund for any of their students that attend the event. This will be an amazing chance to meet and impress potential tech companies looking for students in the area! The standard ticket price includes pizza and parking for the weekend so it’s an absolute bargain.
