Student films fly high above Kelowna

Earlier this month we told you about a Grade 9 class at Knox Middle School in Kelowna who partnered up with students at Bankhead Elementary to send a balloon into space.

The balloon was loaded up with three cameras, a flight recorder and a GPS tracking device -- to find the unit and to be able to retrieve the footage once the balloon fell back to earth.

Teachers then made their way into the Cascade Mountains of Washington State to recover the footage.

Once it was returned to Kelowna, student groups then edited the footage into the videos seen below, with help from those at Bankhead Elementary who lent their voices to the videos.

You can view all of the student videos, including the adventures into locating the footage on the groups YouTube page.
