STEM, STEAM, Science, Aviation, A full-size hot air balloon comes right to your school! Wow!
Up and Away with Hot Air Balloons! combines the natural excitement of the balloon with a wealth of teaching experience. This science assembly will have kids in awe! Our program Up and Away with Hot-Air Balloons consists of two segments, a live demonstration, and an illustrated presentation.
The demonstration is where the students see the balloon in action…inflated, and up close & personal! Witnessing firsthand an inflation of a real balloon is a magnificent and inspiring sight, one that students and teachers alike will never forget.
Outdoor Demonstration: This is what most people think of when they imagine a balloon coming to school. If you wish, and if the weather permits, we might be able to inflate the balloon on a ball field or in the schoolyard. Once the balloon is inflated and upright, if the wind is calm enough, we might even be able to give one or a few rides up and down on a tether. (We will keep the balloon tied with ropes so the wind will not carry it away.) Students are really excited about seeing their principal or teacher go up for a ride. This demonstration takes about 45 minutes.
Indoor Demonstration: If you prefer, we can do an equally exciting (and even more educational) demonstration indoors in a gymnasium, cafeteria, multi-purpose room…or whatever facility you have. This demonstration is also our backup when weather prohibits inflating outdoors.
The heart of the program is a presentation illustrated with slides. The pilot/presenter shares with the students how balloons work and what kinds of things can be done with balloons. Many subjects are covered during this time including the history of ballooning and aviation, the effect of weather, the mechanics of modern ballooning, licensing, and how the natural high is better than drugs. This portion of the program is flexible and can be tailored to any subject to emphasize science or to complement a reading program, for example.
Please have an alternate indoor venue available in the event of inclement weather.
