Launch supported by funding from NASA’s Washington Space Grant Consortium
On April 21, students from the Whitworth physics department and Northwood Middle School launched a helium-filled weather balloon in Lind, Wash. The balloon reached approximately 105,000 feet – three times higher than a commercial jet reaches – before it burst and landed about 100 miles away near Oakesdale, Wash., two hours later.

Recipients must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average and are expected to share aspects of their home culture with members of the community. The first student to receive the award is Eugen Lazarenco, of Chisinau, Moldova.
