Staff at Armagh Observatory and the AmmA Creative Learning Centre, Armagh, worked last summer to deliver AmmA’s Project Infinity, which involved a team of eight young people working together to design, construct and launch a weather balloon that would carry a scientific payload to gather data and imagery from the edge of space. The hard work of everyone involved in this project was rewarded on 11th June at the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure’s (DCAL’s) Claire’s Awards ceremony in W5,  in an event that celebrated achievement and outstanding impact amongst the Department’s Arms-Length Bodies and other organizations in the fields of creativity, innovation, education and lifelong learning. Project Infinity was recognized with an award from the DCAL Minister, Carál Ní Chuilín MLA, of a “Highly Commended” certificate in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) category.
