RIT FOSS@MAGIC (Center for Media, Arts, Games, Interaction, & Creativity) would like
to invite you to attend the 2017 International NASA Space Apps Challenge on April 29th and
30th in Student Innovation Hall at RIT<https://maps.rit.edu/>
The NASA Space Apps Challenge is a 48-hour global hackathon engaging thousands of
problem-solvers each year across the globe to work with NASA in designing creative
solutions to international and interplanetary problems using open source data. The event
is not just for coders, but for makers, designers, students, engineers, artists, and
problem solvers. If you have a passion for space or “out of this world” problem-solving,
then this event is for you!
RIT is excited to be a part of the network of 200 participating locations taking place all
over the world and virtually in the challenge. This is the 3 year that we have
participated in this challenge.
The event is free and open to the public. Participation is limited to 70 number of
registrants so be sure to sign up at
As a reminder, FOSS@MAGIC will be visited by Deb Nicholson from the Open Invention Network
this Wednesday, who will be talking about Patents, Copyrights & Trademarks: Or Why the
Future Might Curse Us. Registration can be found at:
If you have any questions about the hackathon, feel free to email me.
