BACON is a student-run organization at Charlottesville High School. Unfortunately, we get exactly $0.00 from our school to help us enter competitions, take field trips, and do cool projects.

BACON has big plans for the upcoming school year, even bigger than last year if you can believe it. We’re starting the year with our fourth Super Space Adventure (SSA4) as well as entering an international science competition. We need all kinds of talent (and not just science-y stuff) to pull it off. So, don’t miss our first meeting on Thursday, August 30 right after school in Dr. Shields’ room, D246. There will probably be bacon.
We are kind of breaking the BMDAE into two mini-extravaganza’s this year, since some technical difficulties have pushed the balloon launch back. Here’s the plan:
Monday, May 28: Low-key cookout with rockets and music.
Sunday, June 3: SSA4 balloon launch and chase.
