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!
Since the last update, UASEDS participated in several different events and activities. In October, about 14 students from UASEDS attended SpaceVision 2011 in Boulder, CO. We all enjoyed the conference and are looking forward to next year in Buffalo, NY. Our Arizona Space Grant ASCEND! team launched a balloon payload in November and are currently working on a new design for this next semester.
This quarter we elected a new board, were joined by several new members, and had a great time getting to know one another in San Jose, CA. Check out our ASGSB-SEDS-newsletter for all the details!
