Shout out to all my friends far and wide - you really, really should consider coming to New York City for the weekend of April 10th-12th this year, and bring the kids with you! We are hosting the NASA International Space Apps Challenge for the 4th year in a row, and the event is growing to include a 200+ person hackathon, a weekend long "space hacker science & tech fair", and a livestream broadcast on TV and online with speakers, astronauts, NASA officials, and all kinds of amazing programming. On top of that, for people taking part in our problem solving hackathon, we are offering free day care.
That's right, you heard me: FREE DAY CARE. And the hackathon isn't just for techies and isn't all about coding apps - Space Apps is for EVERYONE: artists, musicians, designers, authors, educators, scientists, students, mechanics, nurses, businesspeople... past challenges have included things like creating educational units that teach the most commonly misunderstood facts about space, or creating video explaining "why we go to space".
Free food all weekend and gifts for participating, and amazing incredible science & tech all around. Please come!!
