Description:

In this design challenge activity, learners make a balloon hover at eye level for five seconds, and then make it move by creating air currents. The activity guide contains information for Educators on how to best facilitate the challenge as well as key vocabulary (buoyancy, neutrally buoyant, Newton's 1st Law, etc.). Two associated videos available for download help reinforce these concepts.
