My dream is to work for NASA – Stockton 2019

Not only were these students totally engaged, but they were also eager to mentor and share with younger students what they have learned. The data and programming team kept the realtime telemetry data being collected. The payload design team secured all the internal experiment and positioned all the electronics. The weather team kept the rest of the class informed on weather condition and flight prediction. The flight management team filed the Notice to Airmen. Their…

SF Friends School Launched a High Altitude Balloon

This year, my classes embarked on a mission of launching a high altitude weather balloon, in cooperation with Magnitude.io. I'm the 8th-grade science teacher at the San Francisco Friends School and though I've been teaching for over a dozen years, I've never done a project like this before. We started the project in January when Ted and Tony came into our class (we are lucky to live close by!) for a kickoff to explain the...

Our 4th Grade Scientists watched and cheered on each phase of the launch at a class Launch Party. While all rocket launches are…

Kentucky State University – STEM Conference for Minority Male

Minority males are underrepresented in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce as compared to their representation in the US population. Roadblocks that continue to challenge minority males include: disparity in access to high-quality STEM educational resources, a lack of role models, and a shortage of highly trained, minority STEM educators. Drawing on findings from current work, this Design and Development Launch Project, led by Morgan State University, will build on an existing regional…

The community came together to share and learn the importance the air quality is to our health and what we can do to improve it. Led by their teacher, Megan Thaler, and TK-12 Instructional Coach, Gaia Pine, students from Environmental Science and Chemistry classes ran the experiment, captured sensor data, concluded the findings and helped setup the Air Quality Student Expo at the Barbara Lee Health and Wellness Center in San Leandro. Using the Magnitude.io CanSat: Air Quality Monitor and with the...
Manteca High Students are running experiment with the ExoLab

Manteca High Students are running experiment with the ExoLab

Manteca School District is where Magnitude.io started 4 years ago. Today the science teacher in Manteca High School, Mr. Troy White, is running a biology experiment in their classroom and comparing with the International Space Station. Students really enjoyed making their own petri dish with agar gel and planting their own seeds. Mr. Troy White wants to make their own agar gel, testing with different formula and expanding the experiment with his vegetable garden behind his classroom…
