GSBC 2019 Is Over - GSBC 2020 Dates will come later in the year. Post any questions on the forum.
We are academics(undergraduates, graduates, and professors) working with fifth grade classes to design and conduct scientific experiments using weather balloons!
5 different launches over the course of 2 months testing various hypotheses. We will be see if scented markers still smell after going into the stratosphere (launched 3/27/2018), what pressure and temperature will cause a soda can to explode (launching 4/20/2018), changes in the charge of batteries exposed to cold temperatures (TBD), and the impact of UV radiation on corn seeds (2 launches TBD).
To share our results and see experiments conducted by other teams!
