Our Mission & Vision

Data Evaluation from Testing via an Educational Challenge with Teachers and Students (DETECTS) is a FREE outreach project that provides middle school students with an opportunity to perform a scientific experiment with high-altitude weather balloons and analyze the data collected. Students will learn about atmospheric science, experimentation and measurement processes, and data interpretation using computer tools.

DETECTS is a STEM outreach program based at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) inside the SPARC Lab at the UAH SMAP Center.
