Barrie Physics Students Design and Launch a Space Balloon
Barrie School's first High Altitude Balloon (HAB) Project strove to answer the question, "How can we do science in the stratosphere, and what does it take to get there?"
To tackle this project, our 9th graders used their creativity, research skills, and teamwork to design experiments, engineer a capsule to carry their scientific “payload,” and return it safely to the earth. To accomplish this, the students identified and tackled a series of engineering challenges involving overall design, instrumentation, the impacts of extreme temperatures and pressures, and payload recovery.
Congratulation to Colleen Dunn, Barrie's 10th grade Humanities teacher for being named Nat Geo's Educator of the Week!
