Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have to be a Queen’s student to come to the conference?
No, you do not! Students from everywhere are welcome and encouraged to come to the Queen’s Space Conference.
What is a case competition?
Case competitions are case studies of tangible, real world scenarios. Delegates will be placed into groups that will work together on solving a proposed issue/problem. Within an allocated time frame, delegates will strive to develop a solution or plan with their team, followed by a presentation at the conference. Case competitions are a fun way to exercise your mind and problem solving abilities while working with other like-minded people, while also competing against other groups. Past case comps have covered topics such as cleaning up space debris, mining asteroids, and more.
