NASA Space App Challenge 2017


For the first time Bosnia and Herzegovina is participating in NASA Space Apps Challenge and joining the inspiring community of researchers, scientists and collaborators in the aspirations to create innovative solutions for global problems!

We have a lot of local supporters and sponsors, among which the most important ones are: Art&Science Association Laboratorium – thank you for hosting this event and providing initial assistance, Astronomic Society Polaris – thank you for helping us to get the venue Kuća plamena mira for the Space App Data Bootcamp and the Hackathon.


NASA announced the challenges for the NASA Space App Challenge 2017 on March 28, 2017. Therefore students, scientists, programmers, technology enthusiasts, designers, engineers and everyone else is invited to take on challenges that we all face today. Your task is to gather a team of people with a diverse background, choose your challenge and register for this year’s Space Apps Challenge in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The challenge you select will be on your mind for 48 hours during which you will work together with your team and come up with an innovative solution. Your solution doesn’t have to be an ‘app’ in a traditional sense. Your solution can be anything from a website, desktop and mobile application, concept or hardware prototype. Your team will present the solution to a local audience and a jury consisting of industrial professionals. Nice awards will be secured for the best solutions and they will also compete on a global level!


It is expected from all participants to bring their own development devices (notebooks, smartphones, tablets, electronics etc.) or any other specific tools required for the development of your project. We will ensure all participants have a Wi-Fi based Internet access and power sockets. We will also provide free meals and refreshments (water, tea, coffee, snacks etc.) throughout the event. There will always be at least one organizer present to help you with any questions you might have.
