Hi,

Please help us connect with potential mentors who can support participants (or even participate) this weekend in the NASA Space Apps Hackathon. This is part of the NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge Hackathon<https://www.spaceappschallenge.org/> that is happening in over 200 locations around the world, October 18-20, 2019 and Seattle will host an event! Mentors are a key part of our local site since they can provide some advice and we are looking for mentors who would like to participate.

As a mentor, you can share your knowledge to help teams on their way to build challenge solutions using NASA data.


Mentors are needed who can cover any of the following areas:
• Navigating and understanding NASA data sets
• Cloud-based data processing
• Satellite and other image processing
• Machine Learning and AI
• Web and mobile app development
• Space navigation/observation
• Earth ecosystems monitoring
• Climate change expertise

Primetime for mentors is on Saturday 10/19. Since it is a hackathon, you can let us know how many hours you would like to commit. On Saturday we will start hacking at 9am and will stop at 9pm, so any time in between will be great. Mentors can participate up to the full duration, though if you can only stay a short while, please budget a minimum 2 hours. Parking discount is offered ($5 for the entire day!), as well, coffee and food during the day.

Details on the challenge categories can be found here: https://2019.spaceappschallenge.org/challenges/

Please email volunteers at spaceappsseattle.org<mailto:volunteers at spaceappsseattle.org> with your interest. We hope you can join us in the excitement of global movement advancing our future in space and life on Earth!

For more information or if you are interested in participating as a mentor, please contact Michael Doyle (Lead Organizer for Space Apps Seattle) at mike at spaceappsseattle.org<mailto:mike at spaceappsseattle.org>

Hope you can join us.
