The White Dwarf Weather Balloon Project Fund

Organized by: Kimberly Parra

We are students at High Tech High Point Loma in San Diego, California. Recently we embarked on an endeavor  to create a weather balloon and launch it in the greater San Diego area. However, we felt as though we could do more. We wanted to create a virtual reality for those who are unable to experience space. We would put up a 360° GoPro to capture the beauty of the lower atmosphere. We would then take that footage and visit schools, hospitals and nursing homes all over Southern California. The members of these communities would be able to encounter a situation they would otherwise never be able to. 

To purchase a GoPro of this caliber we need $5050. To be able to string all the footage together we would need the GoPro by the 17th of November. This would allow us to have time to create the virtual reality experience and give it to as many people as possible. The timing will also make it a very special present for the holidays .

We really appreciate everything and anything you can give. Every dollar counts to give the gift of space to those who could never even hope to receive it. We thank you for your donation. If you want to be more involved, contact us at
