St. Michael's College School is the leader in Catholic boys' education in Canada. The school offers students in Grades 7-12 an enriched, Catholic, Liberal Arts education complemented by a number of diverse co-curricular programmes. Several keen students interested in engineering and Earth sciences decided to introduce a realistic, yet challenging, space balloon challenge. Inspired by how even elementary schools were doing this challenge, St. Mike's is thrilled to be a part of this.
Launching the balloon from a farm in Goderich, the balloon's launch will be tracked with a spot GPS. The trajectory will be calculated beforehand, so that our recovery team can be ready to receive the balloon landing.
We are very interested to try out something new and extraordinary, yet doable. As brightly minded students desiring to try out numerous things in high school, we want to give a new opportunity to ourselves and future students, by establishing GSBC team in the school.
