Canada-Wide Experiment w/ Cybermentor and Science Rendezvous

Cybermentor and the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Science SOAR program are joining forces with the Dr. Elliott School in Linden, Alberta to take part in Science Rendezvous’ Canada-Wide Experiment.

Science Rendezvous is launching its second instalment of the Canada-Wide Experiment (CWE). The CWE is a series of 12 high-altitude balloon launches across the country (from Vancouver to Inuvik to St. John’s, NL). These stratospheric balloons are equipped with video and data sensors to take a snap-shot of Canada’s atmospheric health at one time. Now we will be able to compare results with last year’s launch and start to track trends in our atmosphere!

Things we will be monitoring:

  • GPS location
  • Accelerometer/Magnetometer motion
  • Temperature
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Humidity
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • Ammonia (NH3)
  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
  • Ozone (O3)

Check out our launch video from last year:

Highlights

Results and video from our part in the Canada-Wide Experiment will be showcased at our upcoming Explore IT event to be held on May 28th 2017 from 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

Explore IT is an interactive conference for grade nine girls to explore the exciting world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics(STEM). Leading edge institutions and corporations work together to increase girls’ awareness of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and related career options that will inspire them and help shape their potential futures. Using state of the art technology at Mount Royal University, SAIT Polytechnic, and the University of Calgary, the girls participate in hands-on sessions in areas such as multimedia, networking, cinema, television, Java programming, robotics, geomatics, web page design and so much more.
