The Spaceapps challenge is a NASA organized yearly Collaborative event, in which innovators from around the world come together for 48 hours in local hubs, to work on various initiatives. The collaborators work on 5 themes based on NASA mission directorates. The themes are Earth Watch, Technology in Space, Human Spaceflight, Robotics and Asteroids. Prizes are handed out to the best ideas, but the competition is meant to foster innovation and collaboration among the nations of the world.
This year Idea Hub in Calabar is one of the hubs for the event.
