PSU Dryden Drop Tower Field Trip

Wow! Our students had a great time and learned so much on our field trip to Portland State University’s Dryden Drop Tower in the school’s engineering building. The purpose was for students to explore the effect of a weightless environment on various objects. Under the guidance of PSU professor Mark Weislogel and several of his students, our students designed experiments that were dropped from the Drop Tower and captured on video for analysis at a later date when¬†the video files are¬†compiled. Our students also received guided tours of the data center, International Space Station control center, and rocket lab. Thank you, Mark, for a great experience.!
