Putting up a weather balloon with temp/altimeter sensor - Need advice!
September 13, 2012
I'm a high school science teacher and I'm planning on putting up a high altitude weather balloon later this year. I'd like it to carry with it an on-board temperature/altitude sensor. I'm thinking of using the Parallax Altimeter Module MS5607 module to measure both. My question is fairly straight forward: Do you think that this sensor will interface with the PICAXE 28 project board (a la LMR Start Here Bot)? I am pretty familliar with this board and have come to really love it, so if at all possible, I'd like to stay with it.
Please let me know what you think. This would not be first time that LMR totally helped my projects "get off the ground" heh heh (get it? Weather balloon?). I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
