These web pages provide information about classroom experiments planned for a few of the Boulder Valley School District third grade classes as part of our NASA Educational Outreach Program (EOP). This EOP started in 1997 at the Bear Creek Elementary School, High Peaks Elementary School, and Creekside at Martin Park Elementary School. This program is supported by the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado (CU). This experiment is sponsored by the NASA Space Science Division as a Ionospheric, Thermosphere, Mesosphere suborbital program.
