You know Ariel the little mermaid? This satellite I'm going to build is an arial satellite. So that's what I'm naming it. Little Ariel.

Hi, I'm Audrey Hale.

In first grade I built a solar system and added the enterprise. I like to use creativity and science together.  I want to be a technical engineer when I grow up. I want to change the world and solve problems with new technology that I build.

Right now I am in the 5th grade and I want to build a satellite. They are used every day, and so far I have researched nine different types. I want to learn the basics. So I found my Mom's old MAKE magazine that explains how to make it and I found the materials I need online. I have found some experts to help me learn how to do it. 

But, its kinda expensive. I used most of my savings to pay for the materials I have so far. YOUR funding will help me to finish my satellite.  I also want to donate this project when its complete to my school. That way other kids can learn what I did about how satellites work and get into science. 

The rewards will be cool, I really hope you can help fund my project!

Risks and challenges

To help with the risk of the satellite getting lost we are using extra strong kite string and will be checking the weather and planning on launching only when conditions are good.
