Re: NSS Houston Chapter Events

Follow up on NSS Houston presentation ....

This was a ** very ** interesting talk, with plenty of slides and short videos to explain the student activities.

Over the course of several years, the presenter and a number of adult assistants provided opportunities for a number of students from a school district in Utah to build and fly scientific balloons to heights as great as 115,000 feet. The balloons were designed to burst so that no debris was scattered about. A parachute was used to deliver the electronics package safely to Earth.

After the balloon STEM presentation, Dr Greg Stanley gave his usual thorough report on space related events of the past month.

I am happy to try to answer any questions that forum members might have.
