Sponsor a student
SATINS is committed to inspiring and enabling the next generation of innovators, to create critical thinkers, and to help increase student achievement in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, but we cannot do it alone:
Our sponsorship program is where you come in. In order to make this opportunity available to every student in every public, private, and home schooled classroom no matter their location - it must be a free program.
This is a fantastic opportunity for you to make a difference in the life of a student. By becoming a sponsor and making it possible for a student’s experiment to reach Near-Space, your support will not only help make SATINS bigger and better, you will be playing a pivotal role in sending a student on a life-long journey of unlimited discovery and possibilities.
Student Mission Flight Profile
Each classrooms mission will fly student experiments to average heights of 100,000 feet or more. As the student science platform climbs through the atmosphere at about 1,000 feet per minute the experiments on board will experience rapid changes in both temperature and atmosphere. Once the platform reaches “float altitude” (the altitude where the balloon expands to its maximum diameter) the balloon will burst and the platform carrying student experiments will be on its way back to Earth where it will then be safely recovered.
Like real-world scientists each student will then inspect their experiment, collect, and publish their data.
Your participation in the SATINS Ambassador program will enable an individual student, classroom, or an entire school to fly into near space at no cost to them, this is very important because it will open up these types of opportunities to those schools who may not have the financial resources to participate otherwise.

We Need You!
Ambassadors are a key component to the success of our program. Without the sponsorship of students SATINS would not be able to make this program FREE to schools across the United States.
Please print your name as you wish it to appear on our website and on our near space sponsorship billboard and we will contact you shortly.
The average DIY mission cost for this type of space program is between $800.00 and $1,500.00 with the generous support of our partners SATINS can buy these same kits for less. Our science platforms can carry a maximum payload of 12 lbs each offering a complete near space launch and recovery program at a very affordable price to our Ambassadors. If you would like to sponsor a group of students or classroom please contact us and we will be happy to discuss with you our many options that we have available.
