YOU get our public thanks for your donation. THEY earn an incentive when they hit their funding milestones. Give $500 or more and earn an incentive of your own. Donate to the team of your choice and let’s get some science flying!
Science is challenging. Science at 90,000 feet is a incredibly challenging. Teachers in Space is looking to send four teams to El Calafate, Argentina this August to work on science bound for the edge of space aboard the Perlan II glider.
These teams will learn what it takes to support science on the flight line. They will prepare experiments, retrieve the results and transmit the data to waiting science teams across the globe. They will study weather data and help drive science in an area of our planet that is difficult to study. They will also be working with students to bring the science straight to the classroom – real science that will change lives.
But we need your help to make it a reality. Each team member needs $8,000 for their mission operations and travel expenses. Donate to the team of your choice and let’s get some science flying.
