STRATOSTAR PROJECTS ARE FOR EVERYONE
From the start of your high altitude weather balloon program, the StratoStar team will be there with you. When you're narrowing down your choices and deciding on a package, when you're planning your mission, when you launch it, chase it, and retrieve it, just consider StratoStar part of your team. Curious about which package you need? Contact us. We'll help you determine your needs, and find the near space balloon package that's going to work best for you.

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 is built around helping you achieve your unique educational objectives. Our custom solutions include all of the training, equipment, software and supplies for your institution to conduct your own missions to the edge of space.
No two StratoStar programs are the same.
