NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge Back for Another Year (Updated)

NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge is back for another year with Montreal and the Kitchener Waterloo region as the first two Canadian cities to announce their participation.

The Canadian Space Agency has yet to announce if they will participate, but based on the last couple of years and feedback we’ve heard, it would make sense for them to support events in Canadian cities.

This year’s event will run between Friday, October 18 starting at 5:00 pm ET and going through to Sunday, October 20, 6:00 pm ET.

Note: After we published this story we were contacted by one of the organizers of the Ottawa event last year who informed us they will be participating this year as well. We will post updates as we learn of more Canadian cities participating.
