NASA International Space Apps Challenge Orientation Day: Biratnagar

NASA International Space Apps Challenge, one of the biggest hackathon in the field of science and technology is going to happen from October 18th to October 20th.  Actually, NASA itself cannot solve all the problems. They too required ideas and problem solver out of the box. So every time they are on a mission to find something unique and extraordinary.

The scientist from NASA write down their problems from their day to day life and make a yearly problem sheet. And then they go on a mission to find their solution. For this they organize several programs like open data, global citizens collaborate with strangers, colleagues, and friends.
