(CGUHS) On Tuesday, September 19, students from the Arizona State University (ASU) Nationwide Eclipse Balloon Project (NEBP) team traveled to Casa Grande to visit and share with their NEBP colleagues at CGUHS. The status of the NEBP was discussed as well as ways in which ASU and CGUHS students might collaborate on future projects. The combined Arizona NEBP team includes Arizona State University, University of Arizona, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and Casa Grande Union High School. The university students will travel to Roswell, New Mexico, in October, where they will launch two high-altitude balloons, tracked by two separate ground stations, to gather data on the effect of the annular eclipse on the Earth's atmosphere. The Nationwide Eclipse Balloon Project at CGUHS is undertaken by the Near Space Research Team and members of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) as an extension of the CTE Engineering program. NEBP is a part of the NASA Space Grant program. The project status briefing was followed by a period of general discussion regarding aspects of the project and collaboration between the combined team. The Cougars are advised by Mr. John Morris.
