In 2012, New York City became a founding site for NASA's Space Apps Challenge, a worldwide hackathon that has enabled historic global collaboration between volunteers, private companies, NGOs, and government agencies. In 2017 over 25,000 people participated all over the world from 187 locations in 69 countries building 1,300 projects. Since its founding, our Space Apps NYC team has locally organized six hackathons and three conferences, has hosted NASA's global mainstage three years in a row, and has grown our diverse space hacker community to the largest and most active chapter with over 2000 hackers! Also, by partnering with Space Apps Brooklyn, we are expanding to more boroughs in order to run multiple locations for the hackathon and bootcamp.
