In it’s ongoing mission to promote the entrepreneurial space industry, NewSpace Chicago is hosting a virtualStudent Space Congress in Chicago this April 2021. Through this event, we want to provide students – undergraduate and graduate – from across the country the opportunity to present their space-related projects, research, and work to a broad public and industry-specific audience. Indeed, students may exhibit innovative and novel work in a broad range of astronomy, astrophysics, commerce, engineering, law, policy, and science related topics. The presentations should convey information about work completed by the students and the application of their work to the broader space industry.
Indeed, beyond the student participants, NewSpace Chicago welcomes companies and thought leaders in the broader space industry to attend the Congress. Students will then be provided the opportunity to share their work with participants in the space industry and benefit from key networking opportunities. At the same time, employers will meet bright new talent in the space industry. Additionally, our virtual Space Congress will be open to the public. Through this window into present and future space, NewSpace Chicago hopes to inspire the next generation of space enthusiasts as well as provide international community an exciting perspective into an exciting time.
