STEM Balloon Launch

5...4...3...2...1 We are ready for lift off! Our third graders got to experience the excitement of launching a weather balloon. We learned about weather balloons, graphing, and data. It was an exciting day full of science and exploration! Here are just few of the scientific questions we asked ourselves:

-How does air temperature change as a balloon floats higher and higher into the atmosphere?

-How does air pressure change as a balloon floats higher and higher into the atmosphere?

-How does humidity change as a balloon floats higher and higher into the atmosphere?
