The crew of the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon will present a special educational program about ballooning at the Kendall PTA's Family Night.

Students explore the interior of the partially inflated RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon envelope.

The RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon pays a special visit to Oliver Julian Kendall Elementary School, 2408 Meadow Lake Dr., in Naperville, Ill., on the evening of Oct. 23. The balloon crew will present an interactive educational program to students and their parents as part of the Kendall PTA’s Family Night.

The program will be presented at 5:30 p.m. and again at 6:30 p.m. in the school gymnasium and will familiarize its audience with various aspects of ballooning, including its history and the scientific principles involved. There also will be a demonstration on how the balloon functions and an opportunity to closely inspect balloon components, including the envelope and basket. The balloon envelope will be partially inflated, and there will be ample opportunities for photos.
