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 an outreach program under MIT's NSBE chapter that is striving to increase the number of underrepresented students in engineering fields. The Global Space Balloon Challenge provides a great way for us to accomplish our goal.
We plan to send some type of experiment to near space conditions to see what happens! We also plan to collaborate with another MIT team.
We joined because it seemed like a great opportunity to be a part of a greater scientific endeavor.
