Up, up and away
The RE/MAX of Michigan School Balloon Program came to Superior Hills Elementary School in Marquette on Thursday. Above left, students learn the history and science behind balloons in the SHES gym from a RE/MAX baloon pilot before getting a chance to see one in person. Above right, students watch as the baloon is filled with cold air. Afterward, the students were able to walk around inside the balloon, as shown in the photo at left.
Presentations like this one are scheduled at schools throughout the state this year, according to the RE/MAX Above Michigan Facebook page. (Photos courtesy of Fran Sevegney)
