GSBC 2020 Announced! GSBC 2020 Starts April 3. Closing date of the window will depend on what happens with the coronovirus. At minimum, window is extended until August 1, 2020. Please stay safe and abide by local recommendations.
We are a group of approximately 15 students and a teacher in Kennebunk Maine. This is our first shot at Near Space Ballooning and we are looking forward to exploring and doing some interesting experiments.
We will be doing the standard video, but adding some experiments that include measuring temperature, pressure, sound dissipation and testing for ozone as the balloon ascends. Our launch date is a bit flexible as we live on the east coast and need to wait for a favorable shift in the jet stream.
As a fun way to learn and compete as well as share ideas.
