The Rockets and Rigs Technology Hack-a-thon will jump start technology innovation at the boundary of the Space and Oil & Gas industries. After a crash course on brainstorming, innovation, and team building, participants will have the unique opportunity to develop value propositions for a set of NASA technologies that have already been identified as potentially valuable to both industry sectors. Afterwards, guided and mentored by the Rockets and Rigs core team, participants will be able to move forward and help develop pathways to commercializing these technologies.
