When it comes to learning about hot air balloons, the kids at Andrews Elementary School have gained some valuable firsthand experience. In mid-November 2017, two REMAX Hot Air Balloon Pilots visited the school’s Andrews, NC campus, and gave an impressive demonstration on the principles of hot air balloon flight. The pilots’ easy-to-grasp slide show, presented in the school’s gymnasium, provided great background information geared to the students’ grade levels.
To bring this entertaining science lesson to life, one REMAX pilot inflated a colorful, lightweight balloon with hot air from a hair dryer. Right on schedule, the balloon lazily rose to the gym’s high ceiling. Naturally, the second pilot had to top that performance, using the same technique to send a plain black garbage bag soaring up as well.
Before the students’ demonstration, the Andrews Elementary School administrators were delighted to get a ride in the real-life REMAX balloon, tethered just outside the building in a spacious open spot. Looking back, you might say a great time was had by all – including the pilots and The Poltrock Team!
