This is the International NASA Space Apss Challenge, an event that invites us to travel the world of virtuality, technology and the latest advances. In the middle of the pandemic specialists from all areas and around the world are still connected. The connection is between specialists from more than 230 cities, leading us to learn through a virtual and intercultural experience.
The province of Córdoba is once again one of the venues of this mega event that takes place every year around the world. This edition will take place on October 2, 3 and 4. In view of the quarantine situation , it will be carried out virtual, in the Business Incubator of the National University of Córdoba. The meeting is organized by UNC, with the support of Insitituto Gulich, the National Commission for Space Activities (CONAE), INVAP and the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Province of Córdoba.
The aim of these meetings is to present solutions to different challenges proposed by NASA, using satellite and scientific information, along with other open data sets. The idea is to work in interdisciplinary teams among the enrolled, seeking the resolution of specific problems. Thus, the different participants acquire unique skills, in addition to gaining recognition internationally . This type of intercultural work is of great help and become an impetus for research.
As in each edition, we expect the participation of technologists and technologists, communicators and communicators, researchers and researchers from different disciplines such as Biology, Geology, Astronomy, Informatics, Agronomy, Engineering, among others. others. Generating not only a space of interculturality but also appealing to transdisciplinarity, as it is expected that there will be a fruitful crossing of knowledge . Children from the age of 13 may also participate, always accompanied by their father or mother.
Hackathon is a term that has its origin in the software and hardware industry, as a marathon between programmers for solving various problems. But the concept is now applied in other areas , because of its obvious success, it began to be used to develop innovative solutions.
In this case, the different challenges are already available on the official Space Apps Challenge website and their translation, available on the Córdoba website. Two winning teams will be chosen taking into account the impact, creativity, feasibility, relevance and presentation of each project, which will then compete in the global instance . In the 2019 edition, about 30 thousand people from all over the planet participated, and more than 2 thousand projects were generated for solutions from various branches of scientific knowledge. It is a marathon that puts people of all ages to compete for generate technological advances and results that impact globally.
Support for these types of events from the National University of Córdoba is essential to position ourselves in the scientific field worldwide. In addition, it is a unique experience for students who are encouraged to participate.
“ Acting” is the theme of this 2020 edition and the proposals are proposed in six categories:
“Observe”, which consists of tool design challenges that make observation data more accessible for scientists and scientists, decision makers and the public .
“Inform”, which invites you to see the data of the Space Agency with new eyes and create effective means to engage the wider community on scientific issues.
“To sustain”, which seeks to answer different questions such as what measures can be taken to sustain our planet so that it is habitable for future generations? And how can human life be sustained in the harsh conditions of space?
“Create”, which seeks that those involved in the challenges of this category imagine, build and create awareness through works of art, hardware or new technology.
“Confront”, in which a challenge must be chosen to address a variety of problems at the local, national and/or global level. This category seeks to answer how can technology serve us as a tool for change?It tries to focus on natural disasters and social and economic inequality.
“Connect”, generates challenges in which methods to communicate with each other and analyze the complex networks of people and ideas that contribute to the agency's missions space on Earth and space.
Let's go now!
