Thanks to generous funding from Thales UK, it is our pleasure to announce the next launch in our high flying MARSBalloon project!

Our next launch will be in mid-to-late June 2015 where we will fly another hundred student Mars experiments into the stratosphere. Teachers who have already pre-registered their school for 2015 will be receiving emails soon with thier experiment IDs and instructions on how to get started.

One of the big changes this year is that primary schools can enter the project; so we are hoping to get some excellent experiments from our younger future scientists and engineers.

There is an updated version of the teachers pack now available.
