SpaceUp is an “unconference” like BarCamp. That means it is a participant-driven event where the attendees come armed with topics they want to talk about, and we all decide collectively on the day’s agenda. Various SpaceUps have sprouted across the nation and even crossed borders and oceans into Canada and Europe. America’s progress into space requires wider public understanding and support. Georgia Tech is doing our part by supporting this SpaceUp Conference to promote a grassroots space community in Atlanta and its surroundings.
Everyone who attends SpaceUp is encouraged to give a talk, moderate a panel, or start a discussion. We hope to gather students, teachers, professionals, and enthusiasts in the greater Atlanta region to foster a grassroots space community. Here’s a partial list of the topics so far. Most of the topics would be accessible to an interested middle-school or high-school student, so bring yours (or a friend’s)!
Register on Eventbrite for $20 in advance through Wednesday, or pay $30 cash-only at the door. Registration includes lunch, snacks, a SpaceUp Atlanta 2012 patch and logo stickers.
