If you are a student interested in studying Engineering, Medicine, Artificial Intelligence or Finance and Economics at University then sign up for one of our online programmes this July 2021. Our programmes include seminars from Industry experts and will give you detailed knowledge and insights into your selected industry.
These eight day programmes all finish with a three day Space Design challenge and will give you essential information to help you prepare for your chosen University path. You will also be given useful advice on how to write your University statement and application by leading experts.
Furthermore, the July 2021 online programmes are FREE if you sign up for next years residential programme held at Imperial College, London in July 2022.
If you are a student looking to gain valuable experience in the Space and Engineering Industry you will benefit hugely from participating in one of our programmes.
You will be given the opportunity to form and work as part of your own company and design a Space Settlement based on the proposal that is given to you at the beginning of the challenge.
Although our competitions are aimed at students, this isn’t a school. Much of the effectiveness of the challenge stems from the fact that it is student-led and that the teachers and industry experts are there purely as advisors and supporters. This independent learning process encourages participants to learn patience, good communication skills and perseverance. Most
importantly, they gain confidence from engaging in a hands-on enterprise to which they are rarely exposed at school.
Students work on real problems, find solutions, justify their decisions and take responsibility for those choices. Surely, in the future, businesses and institutions will wish to hire these self-starters.
The Global Space Design Challenge enables competitors to form lifelong friendships, to gain valuable experience and to work with students from a variety of social and cultural backgrounds. It also gives learners the opportunity to make University connections at Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College. Additionally, all participants receive valuable certificates
and assistance with University applications.
This summer, the GSDC is running two 3-day online courses from the 16th to the 18th of July and from the 23rd to the 25th of July. The students taking part in the competition are tasked with designing a future space settlement. As part of a management team, they act as aerospace engineers, financial management, medical experts, or robotics designers. While conceiving a prospective space settlement, students also have the opportunity to learn from industry experts.
On the first day of the competition, participants are asked to form a company and to compete in a space quiz. After the quiz, they elect their company officers, among which a president who will direct the group. Engineering, AI, medical and finance section heads then take part in a technical training session for their speciality and various officers will receive management training.
On the Challenge’s second day, students create the base space settlement, mentored by academic and Industry experts. On the final day of the competition, they will present their design to the judges who represent Space Agencies, Industries and Universities. Subsequently – and with much suspense — the winning company is announced.
Participants and members of the winning company receive certificates citing innovation, presentation, and other proficiencies. Certification from this prestigious worldwide Challenge is well received by members of the British G5, i.e., Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial College, London, London School of Economics, and University College, London, U.S. universities and other universities.
This competition is held throughout the year in various venues around the world. Education without coercion or intrusive instruction is what this exciting programme is all about. Students learn by doing and thinking on their own. Their pride and ownership in what they have accomplished stand them well for their proper future and for the future of an eventual home in space.
Any one from among this autumn’s Pro Ed courses. Please sign up directly through Sam Hession our Programme Coordinator. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Compete with students worldwide in designing space settlements of the future. Engage in science, engineering and business challenges. Team up with other students to plan the world to come while discovering next summer’s post-Covid London.
FREE space settlement design programme if you sign up for next year’s London residential Global Space Design Challenge July 9-20, 2022. The GSDC is a famous and exciting event for 14-19 year olds worldwide. Unfortunately, due to travel restrictions this year, we regret that we have to cancel this summer’s residential programme. However, if you register and pay for next year’s residential challenge held at Imperial College, London which is running from 9-20 July 2022, we will offer you a FREE place on one of our three- or eight-day online programmes.
This free space settlement programme is patterned after the Space Design Competition (SDC) that has been running in the UK for 14 years. The residential programme includes tours of London, Oxford and Cambridge and a full social programme.
