Caltech SEDS Chapter Update 9/29/2011

September 29, 2011 in Chapter Updates by SEDS Caltech

In the previous quarter, Caltech SEDS has been fairly quiet as we have only just started the new school year this past week. We have begun recruiting for club members with the club fair this week and will soon be meeting to figure out and divide up projects for the school year.

As for activity over the summer, Caltech recently hosted the Keck Institute for Space Studies’ Space Challenge where we had several members compete and win first place as a team by designing and planning a deep space mission to a near-Earth asteroid and back, returning with a sample of rock or ice.

Our goals for this year include increasing membership, awareness, and activity while starting new projects to allow members (new and old) to pursue their ideas related to space.
