Student Org Spotlight: BingSpace

BingSpace is a new and growing student organization affiliated with the Watson College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The group is composed of the Binghamton Mars Society, the Society for Women in Space Exploration and Binghamton Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) chapter. Partnering with these societies and national organizations allows BingSpace the ability to offer conferences, projects, and professional development resources to its members.

Each year, starting in 2019, BingSpace hosts the New York State Space Symposium (NYSSS). This conference is held at Binghamton University each spring and includes guest speakers from the aerospace industry as well as a team design competition centered around a relevant theme in aerospace. Throughout the year BingSpace partners with other Watson organizations including B-Above and the Astronomy Club to host projects and events for its members. These projects are great ways to display your involvement in aerospace on your resume, LinkedIn, and in interviews. From amateur astronomy nights to model rocket design competitions, BingSpace’s events offer many opportunities to get involved in aerospace.

BingSpace is open to members of any major and currently provides the only connection to aerospace engineering at Binghamton University. The underlying goal of the organization is to promote the study of aerospace in the hopes of one day having an aerospace engineering major/minor program in the Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science. For more information on upcoming events and how to get involved in the club make sure to explore the instagram page @bing.space as well as BingSpace on Facebook. The club’s contact email is binghamtonspace@gmail.com.
