Eos III

Eos 1 Patch

Immersive term Atmospheric Science and Engineering weather balloon project 2022

As part of The Bay School's immersive program, "atmospheric science and engineering" students take a three-week course in which they refine their understanding of Earth's atmosphere experimentally, building and releasing weather balloon payloads to record data about different characteristics of the atmosphere. The Eos III mission successfully flew on June 8, 2022. All three balloon payloads were recovered.
