Who are we?
We are the UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (UKSEDS), the UK’s national student space society. We support students and enthusiasts across the country by running space projects, hosting conferences and workshops, and doing outreach to inspire and educate. We’re keen to build links between different parts of the space community, and to promote space beyond that.
UKSEDS, formed in 1988, is the UK chapter of SEDS, the world’s largest space enthusiast organisation for both school and university students. SEDS was founded in 1980 by students at MIT and Princeton University and now has more than 60 chapters worldwide.
- To promote the exploration of space, and the research and development of space-related technologies.
- To provide a forum through which students can become involved in the international space community.
- To motivate students to excel in space-related fields.
- To share in the advancing knowledge and growing benefits to be reaped from space.
- To improve space-related education through both academic work and hands-on projects.
