The Vancouver Chapter of the Canadian Space Society is supporting the organization of the first Canadian chapter of the International Space Settlement Design Competition (ISSDC).
For over 20 years, the International Space Settlement Design Competition has been taking place at NASA with high school students all around the world competing for a chance to participate. This May in Vancouver, Canadian high school students have the opportunity to compete in the first ever Canadian competition!
This two-day event, held at the Engineering Design Centre at the University of British Columbia on May 18th and 19th, will gather high school students aged 15 or more to design a mission related to space settlement. Participants will be given a technical introduction on Saturday morning before receiving their design challenge. They will then have the rest of the day to complete their designs and prepare to present them to aerospace industry judges on Sunday.
Interested participants can register for free at https://www.issdc.org/student-registration-canadian-ssdc/. The event is also accepting volunteers registrations at https://www.issdc.org/volunteer-registration/.
