The STEM club from Holy Cross School in Chorley and the North West Local Centre of the Royal Meteorological Society collaborated on a project to launch a balloon into the atmosphere. The balloon was carrying a camera, a GPS transmitter and a radiosonde, an instrument which transmits measurements by radio waves back to Earth.
This Catalyst article looks at the project in detail and explains what happens to a weather balloon as it rises through the atmosphere.
