Inspiring Young Minds from the Edge of Space

On Saturday, April 21st, Science Heads launched it’s first High Altitude Balloon. In the payload were 5 student experiments from local schools. The balloon and payload reached the edge of space (approximately 109,000 feet or 20.6 miles in altitude) and landed in the inland empire.

Below are  videos produced using footage from the on-board camera.

We are planning to launch two more HABs during the next school year. Stay tuned for details.

Since Science Heads is entirely funded through donations – it’s support from people like you that make it possible for us to inspire students and adults with projects like our HAB program.

Thank you for supporting Science Heads,

Science Heads Are Spooky at Montevideo Elementary

Our Spooky Science program continues, this time at Montevideo Elementary School.

A great crowd turned out to see this event, our first time at Montevideo. The sky was cloudy, so we concentrated on the Mobile Observatory software, and all of our new spooky science stations.

The glowing stations outside were a big hit as always, and inside, the screaming cups and screaming balloons, spider sense webs, optical illusions, take-home experiments, and solar system size display were very popular. In the front of the school, our big, hands-on lever station got a lot of use, with students able to lift 70 pounds with one hand.

Thank you to our great volunteers for making this an amazing night out!
