Participation is FREE and OPEN in all categories – developers, designers, entrepreneurs, engineers, students and science and technology lovers: everybody can contribute to solve the challenges.
I PASTI, dal pranzo del sabato al pranzo della domenica sono OFFERTI dagli organizzatori mentre per dormire, dovrete organizzarvi autonomamente. L’università offre uno spazio limitato per sistemarsi con un proprio sacco a pelo e stuoino per la sola notte del sabato, ma si dorme letteralmente sul pavimento!
MEALS, beginning with lunch on Saturday to lunch on Sunday, are OFFERED by the organizers. Should you wish to sleep at the university and keep working at night, the university has kindly offered space where you can lie down Saturday night (literally on the floor): bring your own bedsack and pad.
Si apre venerdì pomeriggio con una conferenza stampa presso la Facoltà di Ingegneria o per chi preferisce, direttamente il sabato mattina alle 9. Si chiude domenica nel pomeriggio con la premiazione di 3 vincitori e la selezione di due progetti che verrano mandati alla NASA per la competizione globale. Vedi anche l’agenda sotto.
We start Friday afternoon with a press conference at the Faculty. Otherwise, come directly to the University Saturday morning at 9. We close the event on Sunday evening with the selection of three local winners and two projects which will be forwarded to NASA for the global competition. See also the agenda below.
E' importante SCEGLIERE UNA CHALLENGE su cui lavorare tra quelle proposte https://2015.spaceappschallenge.org/challenge/ e far parte di un team già formato e iscritto o che potrete formare il giorno stesso dell’hackathon.
It is important that you select a challenge from the proposed challenges below: https://2015.spaceappschallenge.org/challenge/ and be part of a team that s/he will have formed already or that can be formed on the day of the event.
Lingua di lavoro: è essenziale che almeno uno dei componenti del team abbia una buona conoscenza dell’inglese. Tutte le informazioni sulle challenges sono in inglese e il progetto finale dovrà essere presentato in inglese sia per la selezione locale la domenica pomeriggio che per quella globale.
Language: if you are reading the information in English, you can skip this section….:)) just be aware that on Sunday afternoon you must be prepared to present your project in front of a jury.
Localmente, saranno assegnati tre PREMI.
