Women in Data
The Challenges themselves, the questions that the attending teams of designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and makers will be addressing, are centered around themes of Earth, Space, Humans, and Robotics. These will be announced in late March.
This year NASA is placing an emphasis on Women in Data by kicking off the weekend with a one-day data bootcamp, an inspiring initiative which will be live-streamed to other events and participants around the world.
We’ll be tuning in. Will you?
