High Altitude Ballooning is a great way to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, who perhaps will be part of the ever growing space industry. For example the UK space industry is worth £14 billion, cornering about 7% of the global space market.
A near-space project isn’t just for the geeks; everyone in the school can get involved, whether it’s making a video of the launch, putting together a project newsletter, building the payload container, planning the project or fund-raising by calling local companies or making and selling items.
Time for extra-curricula projects can be in short supply, so if you feel you need help getting the project started so the available time is used efficiently, please do get in touch via email – firstname.lastname@example.org
