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.
