Space Proximity Atmospheric Research Above Tropospheric Altitudes (SPARTA) using High Altitude Sounding Ballooning as an Undergraduate Research Tool

Wendy Hinton
Norfolk State University



SPARTA is an undergraduate, ballooning program developed at Norfolk State University.  The primary objective of such a program is to provide science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students with meaningful, hands-on, research experience early in their academic career.  Students are engaged in practical integration of classroom theory with the real world application.  The aim is to provide students with basic scientific skills and expose them to high quality research.  I will discuss the program’s structure, the role and experience of students and faculty.
