Students in the Northwood School summer STEM program learned many electronics skills, then built their own electronic temperature sensors and data collectors. They will launch them to near-space on July 19, 2018. This project is in collaboration with Coe Brown Northwood Academy, Timberlane Regional High School, and the Space Science Department at the University of New Hampshire.
This map shows the actual track of the payload from the launch site in Northwood to the landing site in Durham.
