Media Coverage of UMaine Balloon Launch

University of Maine professor of electrical and computer engineering Rick Eason was interviewed as part of coverage by Channel 5 (WABI), the Bangor Daily News and Channel 2 (WLBZ) of a hands-on science experiment at Bangor High School, where students launched Thursday a high-altitude scientific balloon.  Loaded with a GPS tracking system and sensors to record temperature, carbon dioxide and ultraviolet radiation, in addition to a camera, the balloon later parachuted back to Earth. The lesson was part of the high school’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Program.
