Mission To Mars Challenge

On Tuesday 19th June AGGS were part of a group of schools that send a kinder egg container 34,372 meters (34 kilometres) into the upper layers of the atmosphere.

Our egg contained yeast on which we will be carrying out food science investigations when it is returned to school.

We were able to track the giant helium balloon that carried all of the schools tests as it ascended then descended (and was tracked down due to it’s GPS tracker).
