CHICAGO (PRWEB) May 26, 2016
Students at Peter A. Reinberg Elementary School, 3425 N. Major Ave., in Chicago’s Portage Park community, will learn about hot air ballooning when the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon and its crew visit the school on June 6 to present a special interactive educational program. The visit is part of an on-going balloon education program developed by RE/MAX.
Presentations covering various aspects of ballooning will be made to 115 students, who will learn about the history of balloon flight and the scientific principles involved and see 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 begin at 9:20 a.m. in the school gymnasium, then move outdoors, if conditions allow, so that students can see a demonstration of the burners used to heat the air inside the balloon envelope.
Lindsey Henderson-Kuka, a broker associate with RE/MAX United, Wheeling, Ill., is sponsoring the event.
