Excellent meeting on Thursday! We met a wonderful lady, Gloria Pereyra-Robertson, from Howard, a local elementary school. She won Oregon’s teacher of the year award and is blessed with the opportunity to go to a NASA space camp. She had heard about our project and wanted to get to know us better. Good luck at camp!
We had the privilege of receiving a talk from Mr. Carlos Fontanot, the director of Imagery for the International Space Station, from Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas! He gave an excellent presentation in the planetarium for our students. He showed us many beautiful photos from the view from space! The balloon team has had the honor of talking with him, and is glad to have support from such great people!
There is an upcoming tethered launch Saturday, April 22nd, at 12:40, where two of our team members will be giving a talk on our project! Alex Hoppe and Nick Winetrout will give you all the information you will need to understand our project. After, come join us at 1:00 P.M. that afternoon to witness us launch a tethered balloon! We would be excited if you came and joined us!
