Timpson ISD's "Bears in the Sky" balloon project sponsored again by Devon Energy

The Timpson ISD’s “Bears in the Sky” near space weather balloon flight project received a much needed boost recently as Devon Energy has signed on once again to sponsor the next flights during this school year.


Devon Energy partnered with “Bears in the Sky” last spring.


Also, the Nacogdoches Ham Radio Club has taken the offer to fly “piggy-back” with the next flight with their own submitted devices that will track and monitor from multiple sites in Nacogdoches.


Tentative dates for flights are early to mid December for NS 6, and NS 7 will launch in May 2015.


Roy Platt and Vernett Richardson are the sponsors of the innovative BITS program at Timpson ISD.
