Project: BOREALIS (Balloon Of Resilient Educational Achievement Launched Into Stratosphere) IV and V will consist of a 1600g Hyowee weather balloon equipped with an ArduinoTrack APRS GPS tracker sending back telemetry, temperature and barometric pressure readings via an imbedded BMP180, every minute throughout the flight, 2 HD Contour video cameras, one facing down the other facing to the horizon and an Arduino running an additional BPM180 with an SD data logger, taking recordings every 10 seconds from the outside of the capsule. All of which was designed, coded and build by WMS 8th graders. Four additional packages will trail behind each balloon this year with student designed experiments.
