Space Science And Engineering Foundation

We provide nationwide STEM based challenges called the UK Space Design Challenge which gives young people in secondary education, the experience of working in an industrial scenario to design a settlement in space. With the help of universities, we provide an invaluable experience to students outside the classroom and bring their STEM learning to life. This leads to the ultimate challenge of taking part in a competition held at the Kennedy Space Center, NASA in the USA.

Founded 2011
