We had a fantastic time for SpaceApps 2015 at AUT University in Auckland. Nine amazing teams came together over the weekend and produced nine awesome projects.
KiwiSpace was once again one of the co-organisers for the event, along with AUT and the US Consulate General. Check out the dedicated website - spaceapps.nz
Team DUCT TAPE

New Zealand participated for the first time in the International Space Apps Challenge in 2013.
While not a KiwiSpace-organised activity in 2013, we were there assisting the teams and providing some additional coverage for the broader NZ space community. The event was fantastic, and we'll be aiming to help boost the profile of this event next year.
