Atmospheric Experiments Highlight Balloon Fest

This year’s Balloon Fest attracted almost a dozen teachers and 30 high school students to Paso Robles to participate in atmospheric research experiments. Seven teams from three high schools registered for this year’s Endeavor Academy to conduct experiments and prepare reports on their observations.
