I will be co-leading a team of PSU students to participate in a NASA and National Science Foundation funded project to study the next two solar eclipses in the US that will engage hundreds of college students in this exciting and inspiring STEAM experience (project webpage: https://eclipse.montana.edu/ )
The team (and myself) will train this Spring to launch weather balloons during the two upcoming US eclipses
(Oct 2023 and April 2024). We will be traveling to New Mexico for the first Solar Eclipse balloon launch and to northern New Hampshire for the second launch, recording data and making artwork along the way! Very honored to be asked to lead a team and also excited to participate in this amazing opportunity alongside two PSU colleagues and 18 students from various disciplines. More news to come as well as a cumulative exhibition at the Museum of the White Mountains.
