Welcome to the North Dakota NASA Space Grant Website!
The North Dakota Space Grant Consortium along with the Space Studies Department at the University of North Dakota are hosting the 5th Annual Academic High Altitude Conference (AHAC) June 23-27, 2014. The first two days will include both technical workshops and training for educators (pre-service and in-service educators invited!) in high altitude ballooning. The end of the week will be the conference, with two tracks emphasizing both the technical aspects and educational benefits of ballooning. The initial announcement flyer can be found here. For more information, you can check out the website, or contact organizers Ron Fevig or Caitlin Nolby. Hope to see you there!
Near-Space Balloon Competition
The 2013 Near-Space Balloon Competition was a success! The balloon traveled to 87,000 feet! Many pictures of the launch were taken as well as a video of the balloon burst. Images and video of the flight are now posted under the Pre-College tab in the menu bar.
Announcing: 2014 Near-Space Balloon Competition!
Attention North Dakota educators and students! The call for payload proposals for the 2014 NSBC is now open! See flyer here. Student teams grades 6-12 are eligible to participate. This is a great opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience in STEM fields, and to conduct their very own research as their experiments are launched up to 100,000 feet in the stratosphere! For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
