    The International Space Apps Challenge returns to London in 2015!

    PA Consulting Group is proud to sponsor the 2015 NASA Space Apps Challenge London event, which will take place at Inmarsat Conference Centre, near Old Street’s "Silicon Roundabout".

    Like-minded scientists, programmers, engineers and designers from across the UK and globe will work across the weekend to find innovative solutions to one or more of the Space Apps challenges. They might be websites, mobile applications, electronic gadgets, clothing or simply a well-presented idea, but the solutions that the London teams come up with will be competing with locations around the globe to win NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge.

    The best teams at Space Apps are made of people with different skillsets. It's not only about software developers... Hardware enthusiasts, designers, creative minds; everyone is invited. So don't be put off thinking you might not be "techy" enough; you might be the one to turn your team's idea from average to awesome!

    Register to ensure your place in this year's London event.

    Please note that we can't accept registrations from anyone under 18, even if accompanied by an adult. WE encourage you to become a Virtual Participant instead.

      • Henry Lim

      You may not be familiar with the name Robert Cornelius, but you’ll undoubtedly know of the concept he pioneered back in 1839. Okay, the technology was a little different back then, but by taking the first ever photographic self-portrait, he inadvertently became the father of the “selfie”.
