SPACELAB

August 12 - 22, 2019

Space Concordia's first supersonic rocket Supersonice heads to the launch pad at SPAC 2018.

 

Welcome to Space Concordia’s SPACELAB!

 

SPACELAB showcased the work done at Space Concordia, the University’s grassroots space agency. Space Concordia brings together students from all faculties who create advanced engineering projects, get hands-on learning opportunities, and are part of a rich, welcoming environment where anyone can learn about space. From rockets to rovers to satellites, their ambitious projects reflect the thriving and passionate space community in Montreal and beyond.

From August 12-22, SPACELAB invited you to take a small step into space with installations, workshops, and events for people of all ages. Visitors came to 4TH SPACE to engage and share with the students who design, build and present Space Concordia’s projects at national and international aerospace competitions.
