We are preparing our experiment for the Rocket Launch this summer! We just got the superhydrophobic material in the mail from John Simpson at Oak Ridge National Laboratory last week!

Using these plates of SH material, we will make the box to store the water during the launch.

Our electrical system is also coming along well:

Above is a picture of the Arduino board and the chips we will be sending up. All we have left to do is integrate the Arduino with the chips and finish up the code. Excited to get that done!
