Up, Up and Away

Students participating in UNO's Eureka program started at ground level and moved to the sky this week (June 4-8). Students from Girls Inc. learned how to program robots in Roskens Hall before moving to the Strategic Air & Space Museum. More than 1,000 paper airplanes, each with a printed URL address, were attached to a helium balloon and launched Thursday morning. The balloon should have shattered at around 100,000 feet and released the paper planes. Hopefully reports and locations for the planes will be received within the next few days.
