A hackathon is a fun and exploratory place where people come together to work on a project to come up with a solution to a real-world challenge. Teams present their solution to a panel of diverse judges and the best ideas win a prize! Prize or no prize, hackathons are a great place to learn new skills in a short amount of time, play with S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and meet experts in the field.

We host two programs. Scroll down below to get all details.

Our Programs

Blast Off To HackerSpace

Have you ever heard of or joined a hackathon? Are you under the age of 18 and curious to see how far you can take your unique set of skills and interests to solve real-world problems?

Indus Space annually hosts a youth edition of the annual NASA Space Apps Challenge Youth Edition in the Greater Toronto Area.

We host introductory workshops to help youth under 18 explore the design thinking process and prepare themselves to understand the basics of a hackathon.

Register for Blast Off To HackerSpace workshop series so you can prepare ahead of the main Space Apps Challenge. We want to give everybody an opportunity to explore what it takes to tackle a challenge in a hackathon – all about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math).

This is a self paced course given you access to worksheets and mentors.

Reminder: This program series precedes the main Space Apps challenge and is a separate program on its own.
