Hot Air Balloons

As part of their topic on Air, the Year 8 Science classes made hot air balloons. We had to wait for perfect conditions before launching these. This meant we needed a cold, frosty morning with no wind. We were lucky to score a hearty -4 frost a few weeks ago which was perfect for getting our balloons off the ground. Ms Pile and Mrs Linklater, along with 8Wm and 8Sk had a lot of successful launches with some balloons even surviving to be launched twice or taken home. Unfortunately, there was the odd flaming disaster as well!!
