Students in our junior high program have the chance to learn and work in teams to complete their experiments, which are launched to the edge of space. For many of the students, this is their first experience with field work and a research project involving the scientific method. The atmosphere and Earth become their own personal laboratory.
High School students participate in every aspect of conducting a high-altitude balloon mission. High School students will put their book knowledge to the test in the real world as they develop the experiment. Students work in teams and learn what it takes to coordinate logistics, execute a plan, solve problems, analyze data, and create technical reports.
College students utilizing the StratoStar program will plan and execute missions on their own. Students will work in teams, just like they would in the industry. They must coordinate between the teams to hit mission objectives. With the academic knowledge college students possess, the experiments are completely open to their creativity within the physical parameters.
