BMS launches hot air balloons


The Bandera Middle School STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) class concluded their unit on density, buoyancy, and parti-cle motion with a balloon launch. The geometry of building a balloon was discussed as well as a connection to historical events during the Cold War.
Students studied interactive models that simulated flying hot air balloons and made class presentations with Google Slide thereby integrating technology with their class work. The STEM class is a science elective designed to prepare students for careers in science or math.
