Global Space Design Challenge
Sponsor a student to attend...
Global Space Design Challenge (GSDC) is an intensive residential summer programme for students from around the world. It offers you the chance to learn from experts from industry and academia. Profits from the program are donated to the Galactic Challenge, the UK and EU Space Design Competition through the Space Science Engineering Foundation
This is a unique and exciting science and engineering experience culminating in a challenge designed as a simulation of life in industry.
Space Science Engineering Foundation
The Space Science Engineering Foundation (SSEF) supports the UK Space Design Competition (UKSDC) for years 10 to 13 and the Galactic Challenge (GC) for students years 5 to 9. The UKSDC is an industry simulation where students form companies in response to a request for proposal (RFP) from a mythical society 70 years in the future. The students operate their company themselves with elected officers. The UKSDC runs regional competition, held at universities throughout the UK and holds a National Finals at Imperial College London each year in March. The National finals are composed of student winning companies from regional competitions and also from video entries. The winning company selects 12 of its members to represent them at the international competition at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Galactic Challenges are run schools and while using the same format as the UKSDC are stand alone events with one main distinction. Parents and friends join the audience for the students presentations.
We are grateful to everyone who decides to make a gift to the Space Science Engineering Foundation . Your donations help us continue to present extraordinary performances, remarkable craftsmanship and inspiring learning and participation projects. Thank you.
