There is an age minimum for this location: sixteen years old. All participants must be registered ahead of time and walk-ins will not be allowed. The first email with logistics information and a survey for all participants to complete went out on Monday, April 8. Please contact the organizers at [email protected] if you did not receive this email. Anything absolutely vital will be sent out via email, but as the organizers think of relevant information/links, they'll update this post on Tumblr.
If you have registered for this location, but will no longer be able to attend at our site in person, please either register for another site or as a virtual participant (http://spaceappschallenge.org/location/virtual). We’re looking to have those registered at our site be only those who will be physically joining us that weekend. To switch your registration location (to virtual or another site), go to http://spaceappschallenge.org/register/edit/
Though we hope you want to participate at least virtually (our subject matter experts will be reaching out to the global participants), if you decide you no longer want to participate in Space Apps at all, go to http://spaceappschallenge.org/register/delete/
