StratoStar works with junior high, high school and college students.
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, problem solve, 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 the mission objectives. With the academic knowledge college students have, the experiments are completely open to their creativity within the physical parameters.
Students in our Jr. High programs 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.
StratoStar allows students to use professional grade technology and instruments to conduct science and engineering investigations of the world above our heads at the edge of space.
StratoStar seamlessly integrates engineering into every aspect
of our program for the purpose of completing a scientific investigation.
StratoStar’s program requires the students to use mathematical theories in a real-world adventure to the edge of space.
Students typically read and watch videos about science, but with StratoStar we make science come alive for students because they become the scientist!
StratoStar exists to empower educators and unlock student curiosity through project based learning ideas. Working with education institutions, we start High-Altitude Weather Balloon programs to cover all areas of STEM curriculum and allow students to complete a real world project.
