Golden Apple: Class Launches Giant Balloon
Bemidji Middle School students spent weeks preparing for the big moment.
Groups spent time coming up with ideas for what would be best to send into the air with a giant balloon. Their projects ranged from messing with plants to sending different types of eggs.
A partnership with Bemidji State has paid for the program for three of the last four years. It costs about $2,000 to pay for transportation and the equipment they need.
The project landed in an unexpected place this year, miles away from where the class hoped it would.
