Up, Up, Up and Away!

Up, up, up and away! Our sixth grade students had an awesome science project that ended up with balloons in the sky. Students learned about what it takes in order for hot air balloons to fly; Perfect weather conditions, hot air and obviously a balloon. The balloons were the fun part! In groups, students constructed a hot air balloon out of tissue paper, glue and tape. Some of the balloons flew better than others but regardless it was quite a show for the entire school. We want to give a huge shout out to Duane Merrell for his help with the hot air balloon launchers. He is one of the stellar professors from BYU who teaches S.T.E.M to teachers in our district. 

Thanks sixth graders and their teachers for a fun show yesterday!
