First Place: KRATOS EAFIT Postobon High Altitude Balloon Team
See their photoss here.
We are KRATOS EAFIT Postobon High Altitude Balloon Team and we are part of a pedagogical platform named KRATOS, which is a program developed by professors and students at Universidad Eafit, that seeks to complement and transform the educational development process of students based on experiential learning and challenges in order for undergraduate students to develop their own skills and competencies needed in the 21st century. We promote knowledge as well as hands-on experience learning, experiences, and teamwork. These allow us to train professionals capable of dealing with different current world problems. To achieve this, students are invited to participate in challenges of international stature in which they work in interdisciplinary teams, develop technological appropriation (STEM-focused), learn how to handle high-pressure situations, develop academically, and innovate.
Our team is conformed by members from multiple backgrounds, ages and fields of study from this and other local universities like UPB, Universidad de Antioquia, Universidad Nacional and ITM who share a common passion for space.
This year they win a Datalogger STRATO3 from Stratoflights

AGH Space Systems is an interdyscyplinary team from AGH University of Science and Technology based in Cracow, Poland. We develop space oriented technologies, like rockets, planetary landers or Martian rovers. The team was founded in 2014 and ever since it works continously on several projects competing in international challenges.
This year they win a Datalogger STRATOmini from Stratoflights
Stratoflights was founded in 2011, by a group of engineers and filmmakers. Since then we have successfully carried out several hundred stratosphere flights, at home and abroad for international companies, TV Shows and advertising agencies such as Mercedes-Benz or Microsoft. With our 7 years of expertise in stratosphere flights we were able to develop our own products and provide them to individuals and schools for various extraordinary projects. In addition to our high-quality products, we also offer all the required information, systems and advise to get you started for your successful mission to the edge of space.
