Space Science Club
Founded in Autumn Term 2015, Space Science Club welcomes students from all year groups with an interest in the inner workings of the Universe.
Part of our time is spent studying space, time and other complex concepts barely touched on at GCSE and A Level. Elsewhere, the Club provides training for the Bede's UK Space Design Competition team and helps them prepare for this prestigious competition.
'UKSDC' is a science and engineering challenge designed as a simulation of life in industry during which teams are given a list of requirements for a space settlement and have a day to come up with a detailed design which they present to a panel of expert judges from the UK Space Agency.
If you are curious, do not hesitate to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org - the possibilities for what might happen if you join us are, if you pardon the phrase, out of this world!
