Carnegie Mellon SEDS Chapter Update 2/4/12

February 4, 2012 in Chapter Updates by SEDS CMU

SEDS at Carnegie Mellon (SEDS-CMU) is celebrating the successful end to its first year. The chapter has doubled in membership since our founding by attending two CMU activities fairs. The executive board attended the nation conference, and took a wealth of information back to the chapter. This coming semester, our hard work will be paying off. SEDS-CMU will participate in multiple outreach programs in local Pittsburgh schools and has received a research grant from Carnegie Mellon to build a testbed for a Lunar excavator robot. Additionally, we have a completed high-altitude balloon and are waiting for a sunny launch day. Every other week, the club meets to talk about student internship opportunities in the industry and space-related current events. SEDS-CMU looks forward to continuing research, projects, STEM outreach, and generating enthusiasm for all things space this semester!
