Have a dream science project? These girls had one…and they made it come true!

Six 6th grade girls from Bowling Green, Kentucky had a dream: to send a camera into the stratosphere!  With the help of a few adults, some funding, and their science skills, they built a weather balloon to carry high resolution cameras into the stratosphere   to take HD pictures/video and make measurements about the speed of ascent/descent and the temperature at that altitude.

Check out this video and their website for more information.  (Just a warning….if you’re sensitive to motion sickness, try not to watch it too closely.)

Inspired?  Got your own project in mind?  Take some advice from these amazing girls!  Check out this link.
