Hot Air Balloon STEM project

posted Feb 15, 2018, 11:39 AM by Stephanie Gerlach   [ updated Feb 15, 2018, 11:49 AM ]

 This week the students learned about wind and its effect on objects.  The students were divided into groups and given materials to build a replica of a hot air balloon using a balloon, straws, a paper cup, tape, and a piece of cardboard.  The challenge was getting the balloon to fly in the air!  After unsuccessful attempts using straws to blow on the balloon and fanning the cardboard to create wind, one group decided to use the room's air conditioner to successfully launch their balloon in the air!
