Weather Balloon Workshop

Date: 

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Description: 

Sci-Quest is excited to partner with GigaParts and the UAH Space Hardware Club to construct an experiment to be flown on a high altitude weather balloon that will “almost” go into space! Working alongside UAH undergraduate club members, visitors will learn about high altitude balloons, how they are used in space and weather research and then design an experiment of their own. Visitors can then attend a weather balloon launch on Saturday, March 29 at 10 a.m. at GigaParts in conjunction with Ham Radio Day. Participants will help with the balloon launch, see data from their experiment and observe the weather balloon fly in real time.
