The 2019 European team of twelve to attend the International Space Settlement Design Competition held at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center will be selected by country heats and video entries.

European Country Heats

The European Country Heats are organised similarly to the UKSDC regional heats. Teams over the course of one or two days will go head to head to design a space settlement according to a Request for Proposal (RFP). They will then present their proposal in the form of a presentation to a specialist team of judges.

Video Competition

The EUSDC can also be entered via our Video Competition. This entry method requires teams to design a space settlement in accordance to a Request for Proposal (RFP) and create a 3 minute video about it. Submitted videos will subsequently be reviewed by a specialist team of judges.

 produce a three minute video though which they will present their solution to a Request for Proposal (RFP). Submitted videos will subsequently be reviewed by a specialist team of judges. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

The aim of the Space Science & Engineering Foundation is to increase engagement in science and engineering for as many students as possible. To further that aim, the rules for the 2018-19 programme have been updated. The principal change for 2018-19 is that each school will be permitted only one team in the European finals, regardless of the number of successful country heats and video entries. In the case of multiple entries it will be up to the school to decide how to reduce their teams to the single team permitted in the European final.

We would like to welcome as many schools as possible to the European Space Design Competition. Each venue listed on our Country Heat page starting in 2019 includes information about maximum capacity and remaining spaces available. Some venues will have a larger capacity than others.

If your team is made up of less than 8 people, please get in touch with us. We will help you to make contact with other smaller teams in your area to form a group so that you can enter. You can email us at general@uksdc.org.

We require full information about your team’s supervising adult. It is essential that you provide us with a contact email and telephone number for your accompanying adult.
