Get ready for Space Apps Exeter

If you've registered for the International Space Apps Challenge and haven't been back to the website lately then you might not know that you can now join the projects that form the challenges.

At Exeter we're fortunate to have the sponsors of five projects attending our event; so I'll be making sure they get a few minutes each on the Saturday morning to try and persuade those at Exeter to join their teams.  If all goes well videos of their presentations will be up on the web early UK time for those working on these projects virtually or at one of the other global locations. 

So please take a look at the challenges and start thinking about what you could contribute. 

The challenges

These two rather different sorts of project are from Jon Rogers and friends
WeLoveData Challenge

This one is from the UK Hazard Centre
#HazardMap - Real time hazard mapping by scraping social media

Last but not least two from Met Office scientists
Predict the Sky
Grower's Nation 

Oh, and if you've registered for Exeter you'll be hearing from myself and the team in the next few days with details of the schedule, questions about your dietary needs and stuff.   Oh and we do have showers, but please bring your own towel.
