Boise State SOAR

New NASA SOAR Program offered to Boise State.

 

NASA has chosen Boise State University as one of 8 universities to participate in a new program called Student Opportunities for Airborne Research (SOAR). The BSU SOAR Team has participated in a design challenge spanning about 16 weeks to design and build a high altitude atmospheric data recorder from scratch. Our data recorder will measure temperature, pressure and vibrations. NASA is allowing ten students to fly down to Houston to test the data recorder for an entire week!

 

We need your support to send as much members from the team down to Houston. During our trip, we will test our data recorder in a WB-57, a high altitude research plane. Our data recorder will measure temperature, pressure and vibrations. We will also have the opportunity to collaborate with NASA engineers and get feedback on our design.

 

Data Recorder rendering

We need your help to send students to Houston!

 

Although we received some grants, we still need more money to cover the costs of the trip, Particularly food, your generous donation will ensure that each member will have enough money on hand to not go hungry while testing our data recorder

 

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for students to test our data recorder in a high Altitude plane, at NASA. Please Donate! Every dollar will go a long way towards keeping our focus on our atmospheric recorder,  and not our stomach. Thank you for your support from each and every one the the members of the Boise State NASA SOAR team!
