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

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

Thank you to AT&T for “powering NASA Space Apps” Challenge and to Red Hat, Inc, the founding sponsor of the FOSS@MAGIC program.
