Showcase Day

As part of your project, you will need to attend the showcase event to present your experience. This year, the showcase will be held at the UK National Earth Observation Conference 2018. You will get FREE admission to the event and will have the opportunity to meet a whole community of space industry organisations and experts. You’ll give a 2 minute pitch describing your project and what you have gained from your experience, and then network with all interested parties by your poster, created as part of your internship.

In the afternoon, you’ll also be invited to attend a UKSEDS and UKSA Skills and Careers Speed Mentoring Session and Panel.
