Please join our High Hopes, High Altitude Balloon Project!
**Update: Thank you to everyone who submitted their High Hopes! Commenting is now closed as the balloon has completed its journey. Learn more about the project and check out our pictures at highhopesballoon2.wikispaces.com**
On May 4, 2011 students at Echo Loder and Agnes Risley Elementary Schools in Nevada will launch a weather balloon into the stratosphere. The balloon will carry with it cameras, GPS equipment, scientific instruments, and student designed experiments. It will also carry our, “high hopes,” for the our school, community, and world.
We would love to include your, “high hopes,” too!
Just before we launch the balloon we will print out all the, “high hopes,” we can collect on special biodegradable paper that has been cut into fortune cookie size strips. These strips will be packaged inside the weather balloon and when the balloon bursts in the atmosphere the, “high hopes,” of everyone who participates will be released to be shared with the world.
To participate in this project leave a comment below with your, “high hopes.” Please use a format like the one shown below.
“I live in ________, and my high hope for my school, community, or world are __________.”
We hope you will click on the comment link below and leave us your high hopes right away!
