Description:

What factors affect the amount of weight a helium balloon is able to lift? Was there enough helium in the balloon that drifted over Colorado last week to lift a 6-year-old boy? In this lesson, students conduct experiments to test the relationship between volume of helium balloons and their “lifting power.” They then apply their learning to the Heene case.
