CHICAGO, ill. (PRWEB) May 20, 2015
The 300 students at Cardinal Joseph Bernardin Catholic School, 9250 W. 167th St., Orland Hills, Ill., will learn about hot air ballooning when the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon and its crew visit the school on May 26 to present a special interactive educational program. The visit is part of an on-going balloon education program developed by RE/MAX.
The students at the school will see presentations that cover various aspects of ballooning, including its history, the scientific principles involved and a demonstration during which the envelope of the 75-foot-tall balloon will be partially inflated to help students understand how the balloon functions. The program will be presented indoors at 9 a.m.
Karen Irace, a broker associate with RE/MAX Synergy, Orland Park, Ill., is sponsoring the event.
Also on hand to enhance the occasion will be the RE/MAX Soaring Home Balloon, a special-shape inflatable complete with house, children and pets that has become a crowd favorite.
