My name is Andrew and I am one of twelve individuals selected to represent the EU in the 2017 International Space Settlement Design Competition.
After making my way through the Central London regional competition and the UK National Final of the UK Space Design Competition, I have been chosen as one of the of the aspiring aerospace engineers, physicists and mathematicians of the next generation to go through to the International finals at the Kennedy Space Centre.
Here, teams of students aged 16-19 from across the world will compete in large companies of 50 over 4 days to design an pitch a space settlement to a selections of senior NASA officials.
This competition serves as a massive step towards my dream to work in the space industry and one day, make a significant contribution to help the further the frontier of mankind.
The team and I needs your help to get there
Falling right at the end of July, the competition is being held during the peak of the summer holidays and so flights and hotels are going to be expensive.
By donating today, you will help us raise the money to fund our tracel to the Kennedy Space Centre, Florida and our accomadation.
Every pound in support brings us closer to the once in a lifetime opportunity to compete in this prestigious international competition.
Any contribution no matter how small, genuinely would be massively appreciated.
Help spread the word!
