The fall NewSpace Project Showcase gave our DeCal student teams the opportunity to present the semester's work to their company partners as well as industry professionals.

The event began with a keynote address from the NewSpace @ Berkeley founder, Aneesh Goel.

Shortly after, our four DeCal student teams presented their work to our company partners Redwire Space, Stoke Space, Space Kinetic, and Xona Space Systems. After students fielded a number of questions from the companies and invited industry leaders, attendees were also given the opportunity to network and form new connections within industry.
