Capitol Balloon Experiment Club (CBEC)
The Capitol Balloon Experiment Club isn't making balloon animals for kids. With the guidance and support of faculty advisors, the students have literally taken high-altitude experimenting to new heights by developing and testing high-altitude sensors and instruments, designing structures to house these instruments and analyzing data collected from the project. Check out a 2009 write-up of the CBEC!
