Stratostar is an education company that travels cross-country to start project-based learning programs in junior high, high school, college, and graduate schools seeking to put a greater emphasis on their STEM Education initiatives.
Using weather balloons, easy to use software, and a teaching plan that has been implemented in schools at all levels, as well as high profile government institutions, StratoStar takes students away from the textbook and into a real-life mission. Your students will plan, build, launch, and analyze the results of a successful balloon launch that will travel to the edge of space complete with video and computer-generated flight analysis. Sounds cool, right?
