Sisters salutes...

The Sisters High School chemistry classes would like to thank all those who made their balloon project possible.

Sisters Eagle Airport gave the SHS chemistry classes so much support through the entire process of their balloon project this month! Thank you to the Bensons and David Campbell for graciously providing the students and mentors space to construct the payload for their experiments and tarmack space to launch the balloon on May 7. Even in these times of distance learning and social distancing, your support has provided a means for our students to continue inquiry-based hands-on investigations and interactions with professionals in this field. Thank you!

Steven Peterzen of ISTAR provided leadership, mentorship, and lots of time and energy working to make the preparation, launch and recovery a fantastic success. Thank you!

Ron Thorkildson taught and mentored the weather and trajectory team.

Rod Moorehead mentored the experiment teams, helped build the payloads, and supported during the launch and recovery.

Thank you!
