A team of 5 Washington College students, staff, faculty and alumni participated in NASA’s Space Apps Challenge 2017. We named ourselves the Dream Team and hacked away at a challenge entitled You are my Sunshine. The space apps challenge is a 48-hour hackathon inspired to bring knowledge to the masses while building applications that utilize data in new and exciting ways. We decided to build a two-prong application dedicated to understanding and planning solar power. One prong is targeted towards an average consumer here on Earth. The other is targeted at explorers in habitats in space, Earth or other planets (we’re looking at you Mars). You can check out more information on our team’s submission pages and git repositories for The Dream Team.
So who is the Dream Team? Team Members are: Joey Erlandson ’17, Katie Walker `17, Ian Egland `16, Luis Machado `13 and Shaun Ramsey PhD. They worked hard all weekend.
In addition, our efforts would not have been successful without the help of our hosts, direct local sponsors and Washington College. In specific, we’d like to thank Mike Thielke from hotDesks and Jamie Williams from Kent County Economic Development. They provided an awesome working space and food for the entire weekend. We’d also like to thank Shane Brill `03 M`11 for his expertise in putting together the awesome video.
