Helping Young Scientists Soar

EOAS Professor Dr. Henry Fuelberg and doctoral candidate Tristan Hall brought their expertise and encouragement to high school science students on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten. The students launched a weather balloon containing  atmospheric sensors, video cameras and GPS tracking sensors. The project did not go off without problems though, and Dr. Fuelberg and Tristan helped the students stay positive and work through the issues. The project culminated with a successful launch, much data, and many happy students.
