Birmingham Open Hack is a hackathon aiming to bring the community together to represent Birmingham. Taking place entirely online between 2nd-3rd October 2021, it is the largest Global hackathon on Earth and open to anyone that wants to develop and utilise digital skills for an exciting project for NASA.
Full Event Details:
Participants will solve challenges that will echo the theme of this year’s Space App challenge, “The Power of Ten” as well as being able to take part in other small challenges. You do not need to have any skills or experience or background – this is open to everyone, all ages and skill sets.
The Space Apps Challenge, taking place in Birmingham and around the world on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 October, will see teams using NASA’s open data projects and platforms, as well as information from the Australian Space Agency (ASA), Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), and the European Space Agency (ESA), to address real-world problems faced both on Earth and in space.
Now in its tenth year, having recorded over 150,000 participants in over 150 countries, the challenge will include participants from Birmingham City University’s STEAMHack community.
