You want to offer your students every possible opportunity to learn. Implementing a project based experiment using a StratoStar high altitude balloon kit opens up many possibilities. Your students will work together as a team to create an experiment to send into the edge of space, and every student's input is valuable. They might be divided into two teams, creating two entirely different experiments that will have to coexist as they travel, mimicking the same sorts of issues facing NASA engineers with every launch. Whether you're teaching science, technology, engineering, or math, there's no limit to the experiments that can be designed and launched by your students. As you teach the concepts, your students will come together as a team to test them first-hand, study the results, and truly understand the topic.
We've collected some information and tips related to the many disciplines that have something to gain from working with StratoStar. This list is always growing, so check back soon for great project based learning ideas for your students!

What Professors Are Saying
One of the great things about high-altitude ballooning is you have the freedom to choose the kind of experiments you want to send up through the air to the edge of space and it's only limited by your creativity.
