About the Projects for Spring 2015

Spring Grove Elementary will be participating in the Global Space Balloon Challenge with 3 missions planned.



Mission 1 … Students will test fire an Estes rocket engine (or multiple rocket engines) as we

                        climb to an altitude of 100,000.  Remotely control the test ignitions.

                        Live video feed back to the school so the students can view the test

                        ignitions as they take place.  Students will remotely ignite each rocket

                        engine. This is a precursor to our summer science project.


Mission 2 … Send an MP3 music player up to 100,000, explore how air density

                        affects how sound travels, capture pictures, gather atmospheric data.

                        Have the students design an unconventional method of getting our

                        payload back to earth.


Mission 3 … Tow an RvJet up to 100,000 ft.  Glide (un-powered) it back to the school. Students will

                        become virtual shuttle pilots.  Students will experience what shuttle pilots

                        encounter during re-entry into earths atmosphere.  Students will take

                        turns flying the RvJet back to the school (or as close as possible). 

The Nippersink Middle School has 6 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 airframes will be considered for this project. 

Thank You for your support with our projects!
