Horizon - School Near Space Programme

I hope that I can kindle a little interest on this forum for a field of personal and professional interest. I would also be happy to answer questions and contribute to the community here.
I run a high school project called 'Horizon'. Each year I recruit a team of pupils who build and launch autonomous, high altitude probes into the Stratosphere (carried by Helium or Hydrogen filled weather balloons).

Hey there fellow amateur astronomers,
