Sign up for SEDS Announce
Category Archives: Chapter Updates
Events ISSS is Doing:
- Joining with multiple groups on campus (the honors program, the physics club, and others) to provide a tour of the night sky to the general Iowa State Student to generate interest in astronomy and our club
- Outreach events that focus on teaching basic space/astronomy/rocketry related topics to Science Bound High School Students and more simplified topics to grade school through middle school students in the local area
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.
Harvard SEDS has had a great start to the semester. We recruited students at the activity fair at the beginning of the semester and got over 50 students to sign up! We are also continuing our rocketry project and four new students are building rockets to achieve their Level 1 certifications. We started our space table and meet for dinner once a week to discuss current events in the space industry.
