Fort McPhersonScience Rendezvous’ Canada-Wide ExperimentPeel River near Chief Julius School, 633 Chief Julius Avenue,
Fort McPherson, NT X0E 0J0
April 29, 2016 at 10 amAurora Research Institute and Science RendezvousScience Rendezvous is launching its second installment 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)

The Chief Julius School team will launch their contribution to the Canada-Wide Experiment at 10 a.m. on April 29th from Peel River closest to Chief Julius School. Results and video from launch sites across the country will be showcased at the national Science Rendezvous festival on Saturday, May 7th 2016.
