The 4-H Eco-Challenge is celebrating its 8th year at Indian Springs Metropark this summer. The Eco-Challenge is a hands-on experiential science experiment like no other. Middle School and High School students experience cutting edge science mixed with outdoor fun. This year we’ll look to embark on the challenge of creating a balloon that will be launched 19+ miles into the air and then attempt to recover the payload of special instrumentation and video footage. There are many factors that we will have to take in to consideration such as weather, tracking and the construction of the balloon and capsule. We hope you will join us.
