Team Description

We are elementary and middle school students and adult volunteers from a small NH town. This is our 3rd year doing a high altitude balloon launch. last year we won 3rd place for best photo. Very exciting. In 2017 we plan to do 2 launches in May while school is in session and then we hope to do another in August with GSBC.

Plan for launch

launching for the solar eclipse. We've invited the public to come join us on our launch and retrieval.

Why did you join?

I think this is an excellent way to engage young minds in a fun and interactive way to expand interest in Science, Engineering, Technology, and Math. We knew nothing about High Altitude Ballooning when we started and your site is an excellent resource. We are excited about working on this project along with other teams from around the world. I think the challenge will also create a greater interest among our young team members in learning more about other people, lands, and cultures.
