About Us

SEDS Mission Statement
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 focussing the enthusiasm of young people is the key to our future.


History of SEDS
Students for the Exploration and Development of Space was founded in 1980 at MIT and Princeton and consists of an international group of high school, undergraduate, and graduate students from a diverse range of educational backgrounds who are working to promote space as a whole. SEDS is a chapter based organization with chapters throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The permanent National Headquarters for SEDS-USA resides at MIT. Each chapter is fairly independent and coordinates activities and projects in its own area.

What do SEDS members do?
SEDS members often take the knowledge they have gained and use it to influence the future of the space program. Students at several chapters have played major roles in organizing large conferences and have established important contacts with members if the space community. Others have helped increase public awareness of the benefits of space exploration by offering presentations to local primary and secondary schools as well as universities. All chapters keep in contact with each other through on-line computer networks.

What can SEDS do for you?
SEDS can provide an organized pathway for you to begin space related projects and give you a chance to break away from the usual classwork. You can also use SEDS as a stepping stone to a space-related career. Being actively involved in SEDS can put you in touch with many members of the space, technology, and education communities and will allow you to develop the experience necessary to take leadership roles in your future career, whatever that may be.

History of CuSEDS
The Carleton University chapter of SEDS was founded in the spring of 2006 by the first executive of consisting of Grant Bonin, Alex Ghosh, Nick Grondin, and Ryan Hewer. It was too late to change the name by the time it was discovered that Colorado University already used the same abbreviation, prompting the strange spelling with a lower case 'u' in use today. CuSEDS' first two major projects, the 2006 Canadian Space Summit and the Lunar Rover Project, were highly successful and form the basis for the club's current activities.
