Up, Up, and Away with the 2011 Balloonsat CompetitionBalloonsat Competition for 2011


The 2011 Balloonsat High Altitude Flight (BHALF) Competition is an opportunity for teams of four 9th-12th grade students in the United States, District of Columbia, and U.S. territories to be part of an authentic flight mission to explore near space. Teams can enter as high school or community group teams. 


The first part of the competition – due Feb. 11 – is to propose a payload design for equipment to gather data on a short flight into the stratosphere, approximately 30,500 meters (100,000 feet) above the surface of the Earth. Proposals are due via email Feb. 11, 2011 for this year’s competition. If that’s too soon, it’s not too early to start planning for next year.  Read more...

 A new NASA resource to support this competition has just received the NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future product review approval.  Find out more about this NASA resource at in the Product Review Blog.
