Because of the pandemic, this year's event took place virtually. This was an added challenge for both the organization and the participants!
Participants from various backgrounds, professions and interests from seven Canadian cities – Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Waterloo, Calgary and Vancouver – took part in the Space Apps Challenge. In addition, Toronto organized a specific event for youth.
The CSA collaborated with the local chapters by providing mentors throughout the hackathon via a collaborative platform accessible to all participants across Canada. The CSA experts were able to interact with the participants and answer their questions.
This year's Space Apps Challenge attracted more than 341 participants and led to a variety of innovative and creative solutions.
