We are a branch of the UKSEDS (UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space)!
They are the UK’s national student space society, and help support students and enthusiasts across the country by running space projects, hosting conferences & workshops, and doing outreach to inspire and educate.
They’re also very keen to build links between different parts of the space community, and to promote space beyond that. They are the UK chapter of the global SEDS movement, and a registered charity (no. 1158580).
- To improve the knowledge base, skill sets and hands-on experience levels of students in the UK with an active interest in space.
- To provide a forum through which students can become involved in the space community through government, industry, and academia, both nationally and internationally.
- To promote the exploration of space, and the research and development of space-related technologies.
They currently sponsor us by helping us out wherever they can, and they also organise the annual National Rocketry Championship (NRC).
