3rd Symposium on Space Educational Activities
The Symposium on Space Educational Activities (SSEA) provides an international stage for students and academics to discuss current and future Space Educational Activities in Europe and beyond, focusing on university level activities as well as opportunities for learners and educators at high school.
Talks will showcase student projects, some involving real missions in which students design and build satellites which are launched and operated in space. Other topics include: technologies for training the next generation of space engineers and scientists; how universities and employers can work together so that graduates have the skills needed by industry, and improving the representation of women in the sector.

The 3rd Symposium is hosted in the UK by the University of Leicester, alongside UKSEDS and the National Space Academy (NSA), and is sponsored by the European Space Agency (ESA). NSA is a not-for-profit organisation created with the goals of using space science contexts in curriculum education to boost student attainment and enhance teacher effectiveness in science and mathematics, and to facilitate pathways into space sector careers by working with industry as well as education providers. UKSEDS is the UK’s national student space society; it runs space projects, hosts conferences, workshops and careers events, and delivers outreach activities across the country.
The 1st SSEA was held 9-12 December 2015 in Padova, Italy.
The 2nd SSEA was held 11-13 April 2018 in Budapest, Hungary.
