CHS students make hot air balloons

Campbellsville High School students recently made their own hot air balloons and tested them to see how high and long they could fly.

 

In Dee Doss’s chemistry classes, students have studied how a hot air balloon works and were then asked to make their own.

 

Students used tissue paper and glue to make their balloons.

 

They began by tracing a pattern on the tissue paper and cutting it out. They then glued the paper together.

 

Doss then helped students add air to their balloons for the flight.

 

Students were graded on their design and how long their balloon flew.
