Medway Weather Balloon Society


 weather balloon Interested in Weather Balloons?

Is your child interested in electronics and coding and wants to try sending something into space?  Medway Balloon Society is a local Discord group dedicated to building and launching weather balloons to the edge of space to take instrumentation readings, record video footage, and conduct experiments.  Building payloads and launching them is an exciting hobby for those who enjoy tinkering with electronics, coding, HAM radio or engineering.

This is not a class, just a collaborative Discord group for families who may like to get involved with making and launching weather balloons.  It is intended for students and their families, especially those with existing experience programming for electronics like Arduino or Raspberry Pi or experience with amateur radio (HAM).  Adult mentors from the Medway Arduino Club are part of the channel as well.  No schedules, no fees, just a place to share progress, motivate, and help each other.

If you are interested in joining as a family email Once approval is given, a Discord invitation will be emailed to you to join the group. 

The Second Balloon is almost ready to be launched!
