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 regional school in New South Wales, Australia. Our group comprise of 17 students from grades 7-12 and are led by Mr. Clarence Goh, a PhD candidate, Google Trainer and Innovator, specializing in OTH radars to monitor ionospheric backscatter.
At the moment, the launch is planned for September and will follow all known conventional techniques including using the Arduino board for emergency termination based on GPS coordinates and altitude. We look forward to optimise these values to do more innovative work in the future including the launch or an orbital satellite from the HAB in the near future.
We would like to involve students from all subjects in launching the balloon so that they skills can be well-utilised.
