STEM Club

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.
