Feedback form is now closed.
Join us for a high flyin’ hot air balloon adventure! See how this fun hot air balloon activity can be used in teaching the basics of states of matter (gases) all the way to gas laws! We’ll build and launch hot air balloons, all while learning how they can be used to teach science principles. We’ll throw in some math and art alignment, as well! This is a highly engaging activity that can be adapted for all grade levels! Balloon templates and instructional activities will be provided to all attendees.
