Description

As part of the TEAMS (Toward Elementary Advancement in Marine Science) program, students from UNCW, Bellamy & Andrews Elementary Schools launched a weather balloon into the stratosphere. This video was shown to the public at the Oceans ROCK event held on Friday Nov 21, 2014, in Dobo Hall on UNCW main campus. We named this the deBort1 mission after the French scientist, Leon de Bort, who was a pioneer in weather balloons in the 1800s.
