BRS Students Attend Chinese National Finals of International Space Settlement Design Competition (ISSDC)
On November 8-11, the Chinese National Finals of International Space Settlement Design Competition (ISSDC) was held in Hangzhou. It was the first time for BRS students to participate and compete with their peers from several top-tier high schools in China. The ISSDC is the world’s premier aerospace engineering competition for high school students, attracting thousands of students from across the world who submit SpaceSet design proposals and compete every year.
The ISSDC competition involves a wide-range of subjects—mathematics, physics, chemistry, materials, celestial bodies, aerospace, architecture, biology and many more—and tests participants’ ability to master and apply their knowledge in automation, CAD mapping, 3D modeling, financial statements, nuclear power plant construction, life support systems, Gannt charts, etc. BRS students performed well in a series of challenges: modeling, data collection, equipment and instrument designing, and experimental data analysis. They also showcased their competence and skill in collaboration, leadership, communication, critical thinking, business sensitivity and writing and speaking in English during the competition.
