Who we are:
UASEDS is the University of Arizona chapter of SEDS—Students for the Exploration and Development of Space. The mission of SEDS is to promote the virtues of space exploration, and maybe do a little exploring ourselves. UASEDS is just the local chapter of a larger national organization, SEDS-USA.
What we do:
UASEDS meets once weekly in the Kuiper Space Sciences Building, room 312. We have many club events outside of general meetings. We take multiple trips each semester to visit space related sites around Tucson, around Arizona, and even sometimes out of state. Club members participate in various engineering projects, research projects, and outreach events. Please check the Calendar for times and dates of meetings and other club events.
How to join
We offer two levels of membership: Basic Membership, and Full Membership. To become a basic member, all you have to do is attend meetings or join us for any SEDS event. To become a full member, we require dues, which are currently $15 for a semester or $25 for the full year. Full membership grants a number of benefits, including having SEDS cover most, if not all, of the cost for trips, the ability to vote and run in officer elections, amongst other benefits. All majors are welcome!
You can pay for membership at our general meetings by cash, card, or check, or you can come to office hours and pay one of the officers. You can also pay online here: 1 semester dues or 2 semester dues. Note that there is a small fee for paying online, and that paying for 2 semesters saves you a bit of money over the year.
