Albuquerque students compete in ‘Near-Space Challenge’

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Balloon Fiesta is lots of fun but it’s also a great learning experience as some Albuquerque students are finding out.

As part of Albuquerque Public Schools’ “STEAM” education program teams of students are competing in the “Near-Space Challenge”.

In the challenge, it’s up to them to come up with solutions to balloon-related problems. A team’s task can be sending eggs into the atmosphere and then bringing them down safely or predicting where a balloon will land. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
