Past Events
SHC worked with an 8th grade class at Liberty Middle School to build BalloonSat payloads.  This experience was to get the participant's hands involved with building actual science experiments.  Headlining local newspapers, this opportunity was extended to 30 students and witnessed by over 700 students.

Online Chat Server
