What exactly is high altitude science?

High altitude science is a way to get students involved in the learning process! High altitude science involves sending a high-altitude weather balloon to the edge of space, designing a custom experiment, tracking the experiment, and analyzing the results.

Your students will love the opportunity to design an experiment that actually goes to the edge os space. And when the weather balloon comes back down, they’ll be able to touch something that soared up into the Stratosphere!

Why perform a high altitude science experiment?
It's time to get students excited about STEM education. Why? Because in the near future, people in STEM careers will be in short supply. There is going to be a high demand for people in STEM, yet the US Bureau of Labor Statistics Administration is saying that we won't have enough people to fill the jobs. What does this mean? It means that students studying STEM have a very bright future ahead.
