    NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) developed the three challenges listed below for Space Apps 2014. We will be solving them at our location. Participants can also choose to solve any of the other Space Apps challenges.

    Kennedy Space Center will invite KSC Space Apps Winners to LAUNCH VIEWING opportunity. One winning team will be from the KSC location and the other three winning teams will be globally judged among the solutions to KSC challenges. Submit via the same rules as global judging to be eligible (i.e. post a 30 second video by Sunday, April 20). More details on Tumblr.

    KSC hosted five separate Google Hangouts on Thursday, April 10 and Saturday, April 12. These Hangouts will each have a focus on one of the following: Asteroid Challenges, Space Wearables, Growing Food for a Martian Table, Asteroid Prospector, and all three KSC Challenges. For each Hangout, an expert or panel of experts from KSC and the space industry will be answering questions from Space Apps participants about that topic. We’ll even had an ASTRONAUT at the KSC Challenges Hangout

    There is an age minimum for this location: sixteen years old. All participants must be registered ahead of time and walk-ins will not be allowed. Emails with logistics information and a survey for all participants will come out prior to the event. Per the legal page, federal employees of NASA may not be part of project teams (i.e. may only function as subject matter experts supporting participants).

    Please contact the organizers at [email protected] if you have any questions. Anything absolutely vital will be sent out via email, but as the organizers think of relevant information/links, they'll update the Tumblr.

    The optional bootcamp on Sunday, April 6, will be at TrepHub. It is for anyone in the Central Florida area interested in Space Apps, regardless of where they'll be participating. Go to Tumblr post for more details and register on MeetUp. The optional social on Friday, April 11, will be at Cocoa Beach Brewing Company. Go to Tumblr post for more details.


    The following meals will be provided. You may bring your own food and/or purchase food from Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex vendors for other meals/snacks or if you have any special dietary needs.


    If you have registered for this location, but will no longer be able to attend at our site in person, please either register for another site or as a virtual participant. We’re looking to have those registered at our site be only those who will be physically joining us that weekend. Switch your registration location (to virtual or another site).

    Though we hope you want to participate at least virtually (our subject matter experts will be reaching out to the global participants), if you decide you no longer want to participate in Space Apps at all, you can delete your registration
