"Discovering Our Place in Space"

The 2021 virtual Space Symposium is a two-day event planned by SEDS with the goal of demonstrating the space related projects students and faculty at the University of Michigan are working on. SEDS has invited professors, research labs, industry professionals, and student project teams to talk about their experiences working on space exploration related fields. The primary goal of this event is to showcase and bring attention to the work being done by University of Michigan students and labs on space related projects. Register through Eventbrite (link below), and add yourself to our event Slack workspace. We hope to see you there!
