DS High School Goes to Space

Thanks to a generous grant from Dover Sherborn Educational Fund, this coming weekend, Saturday, June 10th, a group of Dover Sherborn High School students will be launching a near-space weather balloon… and hopefully successfully retrieving it.  Students in Dr. L’s physics classes have been preparing for the launch, investigating launch locations and equipment.  They will be completing pre-launch calculations and following the launch and retrieval this weekend.  If successful, the flight will be followed by data analysis this year as well as by next year’s physics classes.
