Description:

In this activity, learners work in pairs to conduct a series of experiments using a balloon, drinking straw, and paper. Learners record their observations on an Experiment Log and eventually build and test a balloon rocket. During the tests, learners are asked to compare their findings with the findings of their partner. Although this activity can be used to introduce aerodynamics, learners will also learn how to conduct simple experiments and the value of science in helping to solve problems.
