SEDS Victoria is a chapter of 15 high school, undergraduate and graduate students based out of the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia. Our students collaborate closely with the UVic Observatory, the UVic Rocketry Team and the Planetary Society- Vancouver Island to host space outreach events for community members. Our location in the BC capital and proximity to West Coast aerospace industries gives us a unique vantage point to influence the development of space. The goal is to make humanity a space-faring civilization; we do this by providing professional development, networking and community outreach opportunities for members. We also provide fun opportunities to meet others interested in space. General meetings are hosted every Thursday evening at the UVic Observatory (Bob-Wright Center, 5th Floor). To get in touch email Nat at victoria@seds.ca .

Our ultimate goal is to make humanity a space-faring civilization. All individuals with an interest in this are welcome to join- our members come from all majors and education levels. We work to improve Canada’s space industry by developing personal competencies, offering networking opportunities and performing community outreach. Public speaking, coop support and networking workshops are just some of the events offered for members. Professional competencies are developed by peer mentorship at all levels of study (primary/secondary, undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate) with an emphasis then placed on giving back to the community.
