Another great community STEM experiment comes to an end – WOW!!!! That was a just totally amazing outdoor STEM adventure. It wouldn’t be fair for me to say something like that unless I had experienced it myself, but now having experienced how cool an outdoor STEM activity like HAB (High Altitude Ballooning) can be, I have to say……it’s possibly one of the best hobbies I have had the privilege to dabble with over the years. Its also going to be a while before the adrenalin levels come down across the group :), this one sure gives us all a real high. The last launch literally kept us all on our toes from start to the end. High Altitude Ballooning definitely has to be one of the few outdoor STEM activities that has the ability to engage kids of all ages (6-66+) and bring makers, creators, tinkerers, science enthusiasts, and their families together.
Thank you to everyone who helped make the Feb 2023 High Altitude Balloon launch a massive success. A big thanks to the EMDRC committee including Martin VK3FG, John VK3PZ, Luke VK3UKW, Brad VK3BKQ and Andrew VK3BQ for their ongoing support. A massive thanks to the entire launch team including everyone who helped with tracking and recovery of the payload. It’s humbling to be part of an initiative supported by such a warm bunch of individuals all passionate about STEM and High Altitude Ballooning. Complete Report
