Young Space Activities Overview in the Sudan
Many space related events are organized by SGAC Sudan since 2017, for example:
Yuri’s night (April 2017 & 2018):
SGAC Sudan organizes every year an event celebrating Human Space Flight. The ceremony usually forms a social event which includes a set of documentary movies/seminars about space topics and new technologies.
NASA Space App challenges (2017 & 2018):
SGAC members in Sudan have participated in the NASA Space App challenge in 2017
and 2018. They tried to host the event but no permission was granted. Therefore, they participated among the virtual participants and were able to submit multiple projects.
Asteroids’ Day (2017):
Asteroids Day was carried out in collaboration with the physics department at University of Khartoum with informative sessions.
World Space Week (October 2017 & 2018):
The World Space Week event is held annually at the university of Khartoum. The audience are mostly university students from different disciplines (engineering, science, mathematics, etc.) in addition to fresh graduates and young professionals.
Furthermore, some members of SGAC Sudan were awarded the African Space Leaders Award and were able to participate in SGAC 2nd and 3rd African Space Generation Workshops held in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
