This team built a high altitude weather balloon payload in the maker hub. The payload includes a sensor system run with an arduino mega that measures humidity, pressure, temperature, UV radiation, and acceleration, gyroscopic motion, and magnetic fields. The payload was also built with a tracking system that transmits the location through radio waves.
