The computer apps class has taken on the challenge of launching a near space balloon.  This project is designed to take stratospheric photographs and video by sending a digital camera, altimeter, and GPS tracking equipment over 20 miles into space, above the stratosphere.  Students are taking charge of every aspect of this project from fundraising for materials, researching optimal locations for launch, and recovering the payload.  Students will need around $1000 dollars to make this project happen.  They are seeking both corporate sponsorships in exchange for advertising, and your tax deductible donation.  Your donation may be earmarked "Near Space Project."
