The balloon experiments of area high schoolers that had been scheduled to launch Saturday morning has been postponed. Students from Pella, Pella Christian and home-schooled students will now be launching their experimental balloons from Madison Elementary at 8 am Saturday April 16th. High winds that would have sent the balloons east into Illinois were the reason for rescheduling. The experiments will look at how temperature and altitude affect things like battery life, sound waves and solar cells.
