Kodiak High Europa Challenge

$4,420 of $14.6k goal

Raised by 42 people in 21 months
Anna McDonald  KODIAK, AK
We are Kodiak High School Middle College Students from Kodiak Island in Alaska! Our high school team is the first in the world to be accepted to compete in the international university and business level Europa Challenge in Como, Italy this July. It sounds too good to be true. Our school district has partnered with Trillium Learning, NASA Ames Research Center, and Intelesense in project based learning to solve real world problems. Our Code is Open Source and is embedded in NASA World Wind, a high end Google Earth like web application.

We never believed we would have been accepted. And now we have! But we need to raise funds to travel. We already live in a remote part of the world. We are applying for our first passports. We are racing to complete details of our code and GEFS stations. We just need a lot of money to fly and stay in a hotel for ten days. The more money we raise the more students on the team can go.

Ciao from Italy to all of our supporters! Our team just finished the FOSS4G conference, and Europa Challenge competition this week. At the end of the conference, we were announced as the 2015 Europa Challenge Winners! We are very honored to have earned this title, and we plan to keep moving forward in our research. None of this would have been possible with out our supporters. As you can see we are still not fully funded, please keep spreading this link, and thank you for taking interest in our work.
