I was inspired after reading this article about how a fifth grade girl from Mississippi, Audrey Hale, created an aerial photo rig for her science fair. After seeing the balloon imaging satellite project in her mom’s Make Magazine, Audrey decided that she wanted to make it. Her mom told her the materials weren’t in their budget so Audrey turned to Kickstarter to make her project a reality! Audrey’s project was successfully funded with 32 backers pledging $420 (her goal was $150). We really admire Audrey’s persistence and can’t wait until her ebook with tips and resources for other kids is released.
