The USST recently started a secondary project, to launch high altitude balloons carrying cameras and various experiments. For this project we are working with members of the Saskatoon Amateur Radio Club. This was their twentieth successful flight! As this was our first launch our payload contained some cameras and a sensor package measuring temperature, pressure and our GPS location. We are looking forward to continuing the development of our payload and hope to bring this project to the schools we visit!
On Thursday September 12 at 6:00 in room 1B71 in the U of S Engineering building we will be holding an information session for anyone interested in joining the team. We are always welcoming new members no matter your discipline or college. Members currently come from Engineering, Computer Science and Edwards School of Business.
We will be answering questions, talking about the project and how you can get involved over the coming year.
Beside working on an awesome project some other benefits of USST include multidisciplinary design experience and opportunities for management experience!
If you cannot make it out to the meeting contact any of the team leadership for more information!
We hope to see lots of new faces!
