HSN Space Balloon

High School North students were invited to participate in a space balloon launch sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association.

Toms River High School North has been invited to partner with Spring-Ford High School to participate in sending a payload in a space balloon. The space balloon will reach a height of around 100,000 ft. - roughly 3 times the height of Mount Everest!

Toms River High School North will be sending milkweed seeds in the payload and analyzing germination rates. The germinated milkweed will be planted around the High School North outdoor classroom with the hopes of attracting Monarch butterflies.

The space balloon is sponsored by Rocky Mountain Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association.
