A Scottsdale, Arizona, 9-year-old said his school science project involves using a weather balloon to send a marshmallow Peep into the upper atmosphere. Tim Devereaux said his science project for his fourth-grade class at Laguna Elementary School will examine whether low atmosphere pressure will make the Peep expand. On April 16th, Devereaux will launch a Styrofoam cooler into the stratosphere attached to a helium-filled weather balloon. After reaching 90,000 feet, the balloon will burst, deploying a parachute where the craft will slowly come back down to earth. Inside the cooler is a GPS tracker, a GPS Smartphone for backup, a camera and a foil coffee can lid to act as a radar deflector. Tim’s project is also raising money for charity by selling “seats” in the cooler to people who want their photographs to go along for the ride. Five bucks gets a spot inside the cooler while $25 gets a “VIP” position pasted to the bottom of the cooler. The proceeds will go to the Ryan House charity for ill children and their families.
