SEDS at Carnegie Mellon (SEDS-CMU) began in the end of last semester. Starting this academic year as an official organization, we created goals for our new organization. First, we started with recruitment at the activities fair, as well as the technical departments. We, then, created a Microgravity team, near-space balloon project team, and an outreach group. Each set of members have weekly meetings in order to complete their projects. We hope to gather more interest in SEDS to have more projects and initiatives throughout the year.
So far we have had two General Body meetings. We hope to bring people together more often to discuss current events in the space industry.
Furthermore, SEDS-CMU is actively raising funds to send 4-8 members to SpaceVision. As a new organization we hope to take advantage of everything the national conference holds.
