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 of 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.
16

Only 16% of bachelor's degrees in 2020 will specialize in STEM.

80

80% of STEM college students say they made the decision to study STEM in high school (or earlier).

17

STEM occupations are growing by 17% where others are growing only by 9.8%.

StratoStar Conducts High Altitude Science Experiments To Get Students

EXCITED ABOUT STEM EDUCATION

LEARNING BY DOING

Students get tired of hearing that learning is fun. Instead of telling them, why not prove it to them? With a high altitude science project from StratoStar, students will feel like they are heading up mission control as they launch a weather balloon into the stratosphere.

SEE HOW IT WORKS

FOSTERING A LOVE OF LEARNING

Nothing beats the chance to see science, technology, engineering, and math in action in the real world. Students will love taking ownership of their weather balloon launch. Would you like to get an idea of how it works? See how our previous missions have fostered a love of learning.
