ActInSpace New Zealand

25 May 2018 - 5:00pm to 26 May 2018 - 5:00pm

NIWA is proud to support ActInSpace New Zealand.

The event is taking place at GreenHouse in Christchurch on the 25th and 26th May.

ActInSpace is a global space hackathon, with people participating in 60 cities across five continents. This is the first time that ActInSpace is happening in New Zealand, and there are only 50 places for participants!

Teams of two to five compete against eachother, with just 24 hours to devise an innovative and realistic project for a start-up on the basis of challenges set up by CNES, ESA and Airbus and other partners.

This year, competing teams will be able to demonstrate their prowess in a number of new areas such as NewSpace, humanitarian response and space exploration.

The winners will be sent to Toulouse, France to take part in the international finals on the 27th June 2018.
