Students for the Exploration and Development of Space

   
About Us

Students for Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) is a worldwide organization with the goal to promote and develop space exploration. SEDS@UM, the chapter of SEDS at the University of Michigan envisioning this idea promotes and stimulates space exploration through outreach events and technical projects.

Outreach events are a great opportunity to interact with middle, elementary and high schools around the Ann Arbor area and excite them about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), and space exploration. We also love bringing guest speakers to talk to the UofM community and host Yuri's Night. We are continuously expanding types and number of events, so there always ideas to be leaded, designed and proposed!

Technical projects are great to get involved with research, learn from and network with members and professors, and love and discover even more space exploration. Every semester we have ongoing projects and future ideas being developed and planned.
