It’s that time of year again: Spring! And, Spring means Space Apps.

Now, I have to admit, it doesn’t look much like Spring where I live, but I know data crunching warm weather is right around the corner. We’ve been working hard as a team to bring you an awesome Space Apps event again this year.

So far, we have 138 locations around the world for you to choose from. Or, you can participate virtually from anywhere on Planet Earth (or beyond). From Katmandu to Cairo to Algiers to Guatamala to New Delhi to London to Noordwijk to Burgas and the list goes on and on and on. Pretty impressive, right? All because those of you willing to host Space Apps stepped forward to partner with us to make this problem-solving collaboration a success.

The main stage in New York City will be held at 11 Times Square, across from the New York Times Building, for those of you who live or work in Manhattan. The Space Apps NYC team, led by Mike Caprio and Alice Ng, is blowing it out of the park this year with activities on two floors to allow the coding teams to work on one floor, while hosting a maker faire, exhibit space, student events, media studio, and childcare on the second floor.

I’ll be coming to New York this year, along with our headliners: Astronaut Cady Coleman, NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan, and NASA CTO-IT Deborah Diaz.

You can watch welcome videos by Cady and Ellen. Come join us. Sign up today!
