The third-grade students at Indian Paintbrush Elementary School will participate in a high-altitude balloon drop in conjunction with the University of Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium.

Weather permitting, the launch will happen outside on the school grounds on Thursday, May 6, at 9 a.m.

Third graders are working on items to put in payloads that will be attached to a parachute and then attached to the balloon.

More information on the high-altitude balloon program can be found here.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
