A few months ago, a school class from Cockermouth, UK, asked us whether we’d be interested in sponsoring their project.
Once they introduced the project to us, we agreed instantly.
17 of their students hatched a very ambitious plan to send a balloon attached with a camera to space and back to earth. The main idea here was not only to develop a balloon, but to organise everything surrounding the project. And the kids took care of that themselves: Finding sponsors, informing press, writing a blog and maintaining a Facebook page. The project was part of a school project under the very fitting motto ‘Ascend’.
And the best thing about it: A small Spreadshirt ambassador embarks on a great mission into space. We are confident that the little challenger will make it back to earth, and that the T-shirt will be awarded with an honorary place in our T-shirt Hall of Fame. Meanwhile we’re going to wear Galaxy T-shirts to celebrate the occasion
Big shout out to the guys from Project Ascend to let us take part in this adventure!
