The Nippersink Middle School has 4 missions planned.  

Each mission has the exact same goal, but it will be up to the students as to how we achieve each mission.

The Mission overview for Nippersink Middles School.

Tow an Rc Airplane to 100,000ft, release the aircraft and fly it back to a designated location.  Different air-frames will be considered for this project.

March 16th, 2015...Remotely fired rockets.

Test Fire an Estes Rocket engine (or multiple rocket engines) as we climb to an altitude of 100,000ft.  Remotely control the test ignitions.  Live video feed back to the school so the students can view the test ignitions as they take place,  Kids will remotely ignite each rocket engine at several designated altitudes.  This is a precursor for our summer science project.
