Digital Heats


Introducing Digital Heats, the new way to enter the UKSDC this Autumn! They’ll follow a similar format to our usual regional heats, but are conducted entirely online! The winning team (or teams) from each heat will be invited to attend our national final next March!

Video Competition


If you can’t make it to one of our digital heats, or were unsuccessful at a digital heat, your  team can still enter via the video competition. Our video competition is open to entries from September to December every year, with results announced in January! Winning teams are invited to attend our national final the following March!


Regional Heats


Successful teams in the regional competition and digital heats converge in March for a weekend-long event at Imperial College London. The event features the same format as our regional heats, but on a much bigger scale! A selection of the winners are then invited to join the UK Team and attend the International Space Settlement Design Competition (ISSDC) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in the following July
