Make games based on real SETI data.

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.
