Through our respective institutions with help from NASA Nebraska Space Grant, we have been a part of dozens of high-altitude ballooning launches over the past few years. Our goal is to get students in Nebraska excited about science by giving them an amazing experience, launching a weather balloon with payloads to near space. Our participants have ranged in age from middle-school to graduate school.
