is creating high altitude weather balloons for space & scienceย education.
In 2016 I started flying high altitude weather balloons as a fun personal experiment to see if I could build a fully autonomous computer system that could fly to the edge of space at over 100,000 FT. in altitude and return back to me safely.ย  It was a rough start, but I quickly realized how much there was to learn about physics, electronics, weather and so much more!ย  Eventually, my team and I mastered the process enough to start expanding and building on the platform.ย 

After those initial flights, I started receiving hundreds of contacts from students all over asking for advice and tips about the process.ย  Throughout this journey, I've realized how much I've relied on online content creators to pull from their experience and wanted to share my experiences to help inspire others to launch their own DIY science projects.ย  Whether it's a high altitude weather balloon flight or a ground-level Raspberry Pi / Arduino experiment, any science experimentation helps you explore the world around us.ย  I hope you'll join me in the mission by becoming a Patron today.ย  I can't do it alone and I don't want to either.ย  I want you there with me!
