FBC Geek Squad
Faith Baptist Church - Kaiserslautern, Germany

Team Description

We are a group of men and their children who have interest in science and technology. We are doing this for the fun, fellowship and to spend time with our kids in a way that builds memories and hopefully streches them a bit as well. Most of us happen to go to the same church as well.

Plan for launch

We plan to launch 2 weather balloons. One 800 Gramm Balloon and one larger one. Each will have the same arduino based tracking accessories and data loggers. It will be interesting to see how the flight path of each balloon may differ. Each will have at least one camera, hopefully one to take a timelapse and the other a video.

Why did you join?

I enjoyed last years competion even though we didn't get clearance to launch until much later.
