We are a high school team that is part of a physics class. We have been performing launches for 8 years. Students create an experimental idea then design, fabricate, perform pre-flight testing, create flight and post flight protocols, and present their results.
An experiment module that will weather cock with the wind. We want to be able to remotely point a camera and need a platform that maintains some amount of directional orientation. In addition a beta version of a two way data and control network will be tested.
Ballooning is a great STEM platform. Being a part of a larger event only adds to the excitement.
