Hot Air Balloon Visits SCA Campus for Science Class

SCA elementary students recently had the opportunity to learn about the history of hot air balloons, plus watch a demonstration of how hot air provides the heat needed to inflate the balloon, provided by RE/MAX Heritage in Lee’s Summit.

(Lee’s Summit, MO) – Summit Christian Academy (SCA) elementary students recently had the opportunity to view the inflation and a demonstration of a hot air balloon on campus.

Provided by RE/MAX Heritage in Lee’s Summit, Real Estate Agent and SCA parent Alethea Beasley worked with SCA Elementary Principal Kimberlee Gill to plan the educational opportunity.

Students received instruction on the history and science of hot air balloons by the RE/MAX pilot.  The students also talked about how “love lifts you up”, and was incorporated into the elementary students’ chapel service after the hot air balloon demonstration.  

Prior to the demonstration, SCA staff members had been selected to go up in a tethered ride as the balloon was anchored to the ground by stakes.
