The Space Settlement Design Competition in China ended on October 6th，2016 in Beijing.
The team of SEHS led by Mr. ShiLei took part in this competition and won the gold award finally.
240 students from more than ten provinces and cities participated in the five-day competition;
they made 5 virtual companies with the same members to complete an engineering design together.
The students combined science, technology, engineering, art and math organically and responded
flexibly in the competition which showed outstanding talent. They also improved their ability
of teamwork, solving problems practically and management skills.
Every virtual company is required to design a space settlement that can accommodate 250 people
in the lava tube on the Mercury Surface in the last 25 hours in the final phase by the way of
extreme learning. The design covers the knowledge of structural material, infrastructure human
settlement environment, automation and robots as well as engineering cycle and cost. The students
in the virtual company of our school, Beijing National Day School, Hangzhou No.2 High School of
Zhejiang Province, Chengdu Foreign Languages School Zhejiang Yuyao High School performed well
and entered in the last dissertation. In this part, four our students, which occupied half the
numbers of the whole company，gave the lecture sequentially and perfectly and Zhang Yuxuan,who
was elected as the vice president hosted the dissertation. Our students were so splendid that
they helped their virtual company won the title and Wang Zeyu won the Best Debater in the
competition. This is the second time our school participated in and won the title in the ISSDC.
It has been more than 30 years since Boeing and NASA sponsored ISSDC. ISSDC has been the most
influential and top international events for high school students. A large number of students in
America and Europe will participate in this competition. Outstanding students in the global finals
are admitted to enter Princeton, Stanford, MIT, California Institute of Technology and other elite
