Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS) has launched the Nasa Space Apps Challenge 2022 in Bangladesh.
The hackathon, organised in collaboration with the BASIS Students Forum, will run continuously for 36 hours.
The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) is implementing the project in 313 cities around the world.
In addition to engaging one crore students across the globe through social media, the Nasa Space Apps Challenge is planning to engage two lakh students directly in the competition.
More than 2,000 contestants from nine cities in Bangladesh participated in the event.
Earlier last year, a Bangladeshi team won the "Best Mission Concept" category of the Nasa Space Apps Challenge 2021 by defeating 4,534 teams.
Bangladesh also won the title of "World Champion of Nasa Space Apps Challenge 2018".
