Summer Ballooning Workshop for High School Teachers and Students

  • Bernhard Beck-Winchatz (DePaul University)


During the summers of 2011 and 2012 DePaul University held month-long high-altitude ballooning workshops for seven high school teachers and 28 high school students. These workshops were part of a NASA-funded collaboration between the Chicago Public Schools, the Adler Planetarium, and four universities. Each partner institution's workshop focused on a particular area of NASA science as a context for engaging the teachers and students in open-ended research activities. Here we will describe the collaboration with CPS and the university and planetarium partners, and the implementation of the summer workshops.
