Challenge

SEDS can best extend its mission to nationwide classrooms and education institutions by working with existing networks and organizations. To do this SEDS needs to explore, contact, and reach out to them. A tremendous amount of this networking and business making happens at national conferences. SEDS has previously been able to attend conferences by leveraging partnerships with fellow organizations and volunteering to run conferences but there is limited new business growth with this method.

Solution

SEDS is an independent, student-based organization which promotes the exploration and development of space. SEDS pursues this mission by educating people about the benefits of space, by supporting a network of interested students, by providing an opportunity for members to develop their leadership skills, and inspiring people through our involvement in space-related projects. SEDS believes in a space-faring civilization and that focusing the enthusiasm of young people is the key to our future in space.
SEDS can do all the good in the world but if we don't communicate it then it will be an unsustainable vision. Reaching out and attending tradeshows allows our organization to communicate the good we are doing, inspire others to join it and work locally, and provide opportunities for our students to develop professional skills. Attending shows is no vacation! SEDS student work hard preparing promotional materials, running the conferences, and networking with individuals while balancing school!

Long-Term Impact

We will educate 1000+ students across the US nation and work with our international partners to encourage the youth to take responsibility and initiative to develop a stronger tomorrow. While SEDS is an interest group that seeks to promote exploring and developing space, our best path forward can often come from unexpected directions; because of this the organization seeks to promote active leadership and involvement in fostering the debate of these topics, both among ourselves and the public.
