Student’s experiment goes stratospheric

Science student set his sights as high as the edge of the Earth’s atmosphere for a weather experiment that won them a prize the day before it even launched.

The students at Harwich and Dovercourt High School worked together to plan, build and launch a weather balloon on Monday.

It took year ten student Alfie Benson, as part of after-school STEM classes, six months to make the weather balloon – which was kitted out with GoPro cameras and scientific equipment to record the temperature, humidity and altitude.
