MOSCOW HIGH SCHOOL
All images on this web site have been taken my the Moscow High School Near Space Engineering class.
Near Space Engineering (NSE) has been a dual enrollment class at Moscow High School for 9 years as of this writing. Students enrolled in my honors physics class have the option of obtaining an Engineering 205/206 credit at the University of Idaho. Over the years approximately 61 students have taken advantage of the opportunity.
Our next launch is May 29th. We will send up an initial test of a SCADA system along with pongsats.
This springs flight will have Moscow Charter Schools 4th grade PongSat experiments on board. This is the third year for the pongsats.
This year marks a first. During the week of June 13th we will be offering a Parks and Rec week long ballooning program to 5th graders. It should be fun.
This school year marks the 9th year the program has been running.
I would like to credit the many people from whom I have gotten information. While I have tweaked most of the ideas and have forgotten from where I've gotten them credit is due to people other than me. A lot of ideas have come from the following three sources. The University of Idaho's RISE program VAST. Montana State's BOREALIS program. And last but not least Paul Verhage has been a great source of information through his articles in both "Nuts and Volts" magazine and his efforts on the Parallax web site. In particular I would like to thank Dr. David Atkinson at UI for his efforts and the Idaho Space Grant.
