The Jam Launches October 17-19th, registration opens September 29th.

Join your fellow intrepid game-scientists to create fun, educational games based upon the real science and data from some of the most advanced telescopes and NASA missions! The SETI-Jam is open to all, whether you’re a veteran developer, hobbyist, or student. Your games will not only be great achievements in coding prowess, but will also help capture the public’s interest in the actual science and technology advancements helping humanity understand the origin, nature, and prevalence of life in the universe!

The SETI-JAM is a global endeavor. Game developers from anywhere, on or off the planet can participate. The Jam is a three day experience beginning on Friday evening and concluding with game presentations on Sunday evening.

During the three days of the SETI-JAM, you will have the opportunity to learn from SETI Institute scientists and mentors to integrate cutting edge research into your games. At the end of the weekend, you will pitch your games to leading NASA and SETI scientists, aerospace entrepreneurs, and members of 3,000,0000 member strong SETI Institute community!

Don't miss out on this chance to help answer the age-old question: Are we alone?
