High school students launch weather balloon

EOAS Professor Dr. Henry Fuelberg and doctoral candidate Tristan Hall brought their expertise and encouragement to high school science students on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten. The students launched a weather balloon containing  atmospheric sensors, video cameras and GPS tracking sensors. The project did not go off without problems though, and Dr. Fuelberg and Tristan helped the students stay positive and work through the issues. The project culminated with a successful launch, much data, and many happy students.

Virtual Reality Classes at FSU

EOAS Professors Bill Landing, Mike Stukel, Mariana Fuentes, Sven Kranz and Rob Spencer worked with Stephanie Dillon, director of freshman labs in the Dept. of Chemistry/Biochchemistry, have designed new virtual life classrooms for their students that allow them to learn essentially by playing in a 3-D virtual world. In the environmental science lab, students travel to Easter Island, the Great Barrier Reef, and drill ice cores in the Antarctic. Students create avatars, become the scientist, speak with each other and their professors.
