  • Ingenology is excited to be an official host of the NASA International Space Apps Challenge for the second straight year. This time, we're kicking off Space Apps with a First Fridays party in the Crossroads Arts District. A week later, we officially starts the Space Apps event.

    In 2013, the Kansas City location received worldwide recognition in two categories. Interplanetary weather app Sol received the global award for Best Use of Data, and Stellar Stuff earned honorable mention in the Galactic Impact category.

    We’re looking for web developers, designers, content developers and anyone interested in the collaborative advancement of space or technology.

    Creative, collaborative, change drives everything we do at Ingenology and it's what we'll be promoting at this three-day event. Come build amazing apps, data visualizations, and other solutions to further space exploration, education and NASA missions.
