Each year, StellarXplorers hosts a National Space Design Competition, which challenges teams of students across the country to solve real-world orbit determination, satellite component planning, and launch vehicle selection scenarios presented in a series of online rounds. Students have a chance to solve real-world space design challenges, and the best part is no prior experience is required for participation. We provide all the necessary training and software resources needed for success. We also have a technical mentor program that allows industry professionals to volunteer their time and help teams prepare.
Team registrations for our ninth season of competition (StellarXplorers IX) are being accepted through October 17, 2022. Competition rounds are scheduled to begin in late October, and every team is guaranteed three rounds of participation.
