High-altitude balloon class information and guidance requested
- Hi everyone,
I just got approval to offer a high-altitude ballooning seminar to first-year students at my university. The class will meet two hours a week for ten weeks. Most of the participants will be freshmen, but I expect some transfer students as well. I want to have it be as student-led as possible, with lots of small group work; the goal will be to launch (and recover!) a balloon into the stratosphere. I know some of you have led similar classes, and I am asking for your help. I would appreciate any advice, class materials such as syllabi or lesson plans, or other wisdom you would like to share. Thanks for your help.
