Stuti - Greetings! My name is Stuti Sharma and I'm a grade 7 student in Surrey, BC. I have always had some sort of interest in STEM-related fields, especially the process of tinkering and creating something new, whether that be a new toy for my entertainment or now, a proposal for an orbital settlement! When I was introduced to space sciences, the idea of exploring the cosmos clung with me, and my partner and I wanted to find a way to get closer to the world around us. So, we decided to build a proposal for a space colony called Charma 2.0! As of yet, Charma 2.0 is just a research paper. However, I envision to enhance it and educate people more about this topic, since it isn't discussed often. My advice to a future participant would be to choose something that truly intrigues you and something you're really passionate about so that you stay motivated throughout and enjoy the process! Have a good day!
Cheryl - Greetings! My name is Cheryl, and I’m from Vancouver, British Columbia. Here, I can travel to the ocean when I please, bury my toes in the freezing sand, dip my feet in the refreshing Pacific, and pretend I’m not fawning over the dogs playing fetch. It’s one of my favorite things to experience these wonderful places and people, then write or speak about it afterwards. Mostly speak. I would invite everyone to get to know the West Coast, where I enjoy hiking, swimming, water polo, but also sleeping. Aside from the aforementioned activities, it’s a heartfelt hobby of mine to yell into open spaces. Vast areas are my home, which led me to space sciences. Astronomical fields of engineering, chemistry, etc. are so different from those one would usually witness on this planet, which nudges me to simply know more. This curiosity has intrigued me to the point where my partner and I were willing to write 45 pages on how to stay in the cosmos like a hermit. We’ve resulted in some surprising conclusions, and plan to contact a NASA scientist. I’m rooting for more knowledge, more memories and accomplishments, and mingling, among everyone. <3

Charma 2.0 – An Orbital Settlement
Region:South Fraser
City:Surrey, BC, Burnaby, BC
School:Hyland Elementary
Abstract:With rising predicaments, it is inevitable for humans to seek shelter beyond our terrestrial boundaries in order to prosper. Hence, Charma 2.0 was developed. It is a spacecraft designed to accommodate 10,000 individuals in the Low Earth Orbit while solving a crucial problem of space debris. It is envisioned to be built with technologies we have available today and excludes futuristic sci-fi equipment.
