Huge congratulations to all of the students taking part in this year’s UK Space Design Competition National Finals, which took place at Imperial College London at the weekend!
You all tackled the most complicated Request for Proposal yet. We hope you all feel inspired and are looking forward to re-entering next year or becoming an alumni volunteer. Dates for the 2016-17 competition will be announced on this website by July 2016.
Well done to Rockdonnell, who this year won the competition with their planning for reduced populations and the high quality of their presentation. Rockdonnell was comprised of students from Bishop’s Stortford College, Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls, St Lawrence College, Athens, St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School and Sutton Grammar School.
