Nile University is hosting the first NASA Space Apps event in Egypt, in April 2015.  Giza Systems is pleased to be part of this revolutionary event.

The International Space Apps Challenge is a two-day hackathon where teams of technologists, scientists, designers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, developers and students across the globe collaborate and engage with publicly available data to design innovative solutions for global challenges. 

NASA is leading this global collaboration along with a number of additional government collaborators.

This year, Cairo is part of the global challenge with 125 other cities around the world

The event will include scientists, entrepreneurs, data analysis experts, developers, designers and students from all over Egypt, we believe we could make Egypt listed in the winners of 2015.

200 Participants from Egypt will formulate 40 teams and will try to solve NASA’s posted challenges in contentious 48 hours at the Nile University on 11-12 April, then they will be judged at Local level and the top 2 teams will be nominated for global judging, the global level is done by a NASA panel and global winners will be eligible to attend a NASA launch event.
