Aerostar Balloon Day offers South Dakota students the opportunity to participate in stratospheric balloon technology, manufacturing, and hands-on workshops dedicated to exposing students to the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) in the lighter-than-air industry.
Hundreds of students from local school districts participate in Aerostar Balloon Day. The event showcases the Aerostar's lighter-than-air products and developments, including the Thunderhead Balloon System. This groundbreaking technology is providing new situational awareness capabilities by offering controlled flight in the stratosphere.
Aerostar Balloon Day 2023 will take place October 5, 2023. We will have two sessions this year - one in the morning for grades 6-8 and another in the afternoon for highschool students.
Space is limited and pre-registration is required!
