Newspaper Follows Up on Scientific Balloon Project

The Bangor Daily News carried an article about Bangor High School students starting to analyze data collected during a University of Maine-assisted scientific balloon launch recently. UMaine electrical engineering professor Rick Eason helped the students launch and later retrieve the weather balloon that carried sensors and other equipment to 95,000 feet to monitor temperature, ultraviolet radiation, height and other environmental conditions. The project was part of the high school’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) curriculum.
