NASA Space Apps Challenge
NASAs Space Apps is an international hackathon that occurs over 48 hours in cities around the world every year. It’ san annual event that pulls citizens together regardless of their background or skill level. The participants are asked to tackle a challenge using robotics, data visualization, hardware, design and many other specialties! I was the host and organisizer of the first local Space Apps hackathon in Frankfurt.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
TEDxRheinMain brings the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities in Frankfurt, Darmstadt, Mainz, Wiesbaden and Offenbach. Since 2015 I am the senior curator at TEDXRheinMain seeking to discover ideas and spark conversations in my own community.
