›1st Symposium on Space Educational Activities
PURPOSE OF THE SYMPOSIUM
The 1st Symposium on Space Educational Activities aims to provide a comprehensive overview of space-related activities conducted by university student teams and young professional teams from different countries. Presentations will focus on various classes of experimental platforms such as CubeSats (e.g. QB50), sounding rockets and balloons (e.g. REXUS/BEXUS programme), drop towers (e.g. Drop your Thesis programme), centrifuges (e.g. Spin your Thesis programme), etc. Besides providing an opportunity for dissemination of information about educational and research activities, this event will be a chance to share experiences among students and young professionals from different countries and network with international researchers. Another goal of the symposium is to elevate the understanding of academic and government institutions of the importance of hands-on activities in the preparation of the next generation of space scientists and engineers.
In accordance with the objectives outlined above, participants are invited to submit papers based on their original research for oral or poster presentation. Experiments from past and on-going projects, as well as products and capabilities of the space industry will also be displayed in a dedicated exhibition area. The final day of the event will feature the one-day SGAC European Student Workshop organised by the Space Generation Advisory Council as a forum to discuss the ideas presented at the Symposium and develop relevant recommendations for policy makers and other stakeholders on how hands-on activities could be better implemented as part of educational programs in space studies within Europe.
