Weather-balloon program promotes science learning
Jacob Grunklee likes science and he's good at it. So when the chance to be part of a science experiment came through 4-H the Rosemount eighth grader jumped at the opportunity.
In all eleven Dakota County 4-H members participated in a near-space ballooning program over two weekends in mid-October. The members launched a latex weather balloon from Gaylord, Minn. Oct. 15. The members will gather one more time to see the results of data collected as part of their experiment.
