High-Altitude Balloon Experiment to Rate the Tenacity of Presidential Candidates

Well, in this political season here in the US, finally there is a way to sort out the fittest candidate, with science.

Our customer Matthew sent us this great message about his experience:

This past weekend my friends, daughter and I launched our first successful near-space balloon project. This started out as a small project between my friends and I then ballooned to something I could share with my 9 year old daughter. In the end my daughter’s interest was piqued with the engineering and scientific process. She ended up helping me with the internal layout of our payload and the use of the Arduino GPS Logger Shield.

In the end we were able to launch, track, recover the payload and evaluate the data thank to the GPS Shield and an APRS tracker we built. The
thing that I am most proud of is sparking my daughter’s in engineering and electronics.

Thank you from a very proud parent, Matthew Denyszyn

This crew strongly deserved their High-altitude Balloon skill badges!
