PROJECT HORIZON

THE SKY IS NOT THE LIMIT

About Us

Horizon was founded at Queen Mary's Grammar School. Having been running since 2012, Horizon has provided our school and its pupils with an incredibly enriching and memorable experience. Horizon aims to raise the profile of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as well as being an unforgettable experience for our pupils. Using high-altitude weather balloons, we fly our probes far beyond the breathable atmosphere of the troposphere and out into the blackness of the stratosphere...

2017 Mission

High altitude virtual reality with a mix of experiments This years Horizon team is preparing a plethora of enterpsies for our launch in July. Our project name of "Project Celsius" has suitable connotations of experiments that will be conducted autonomously at almost 140,000ft. In adittion we are also planning of capture 360VR footage of the Earth from space. To discover more on our progress take a peek at our twitter and instagram.
