The St. Georges Tech Aerospace Club meets every Tuesday after school from 3pm-4:30pm. They have been constructing and launching rockets, learning to fly and operate drones, and most recently completed a StratoHawk 2022 Project where they launched a high altitude balloon into the stratosphere to measure temperature, humidity, and altitude.
Check out photos of the project here:

The payload StratoHawk 2022 launch: "Science project of NO DANGER"
This is the first time we were able to film the launch with a DJI Mavic Air 2 drone operated by Jason Nguyen, Biotechnology Class of 2023.
We want to say a HUGE thank you to two individuals who donated cameras for this project to our St. Georges Tech Aerospace Club.
Nick Colazzo donated a GoPro Hero 3 that we ultimately used in the project and he has offered the camera for our club to keep to use in future experiments. Vincent Kowal also donated an action sports camera for our Aerospace Club to use as a backup in case the other one didn't work. We really appreciate your generosity and support of our students!
