  3. SSDC Onboarding Workshops 2021

In order to address a prevalent query usually associated with students competing at SSDC for the first time, Team ARSSDC, with support from our volunteers at the international competition, including Ms. Anita Gale (Co-Founder) and Mr. Jack Gafford, is introducing an online onboarding workshop designed specifically with a purpose to assist high school students in encoding key elements associated with the competition.

This includes introducing all core departments i.e. structure engineering, operations & infrastructure, human factors, automations etc that needs to be addressed as part of deciphering the Request For Proposal (RFP).

Overall the workshops will provide key information for students to become an effective participant.
