The Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS) has launched the Nasa Space Apps Challenge 2022.

The hackathon, organized in collaboration with the BASIS Students Forum for the eighth consecutive time, will run continuously for 36 hours starting Friday.

The award ceremony will take place today.

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) is implementing the project in 313 cities around the world.

In addition to engaging a crore of students across the globe via social media, the Nasa Space Apps Challenge plans to engage two lakh students directly into the competition.

More than 2,000 competitors from nine cities in Bangladesh participated in the event.

“We are very optimistic about this year’s hackathon as our students have performed brilliantly in previous editions of the competition,” said BASIS President Russell T Ahmed.

A Bangladeshi team won the “Best Mission Concept” category of the Nasa Space Apps Challenge 2021 by beating 4,534 teams.

Bangladesh also won the title of “Nasa Space Apps Challenge 2018 World Champion”.
