During this lab we built our own hot air balloons. We had to test them and modify them before finally filling them with hot air to fly.
We cut out our hot air balloon pieces using a template and then glued the pieces together to create a hot air balloon. We had to try fill each balloon with air to find holes and then went back to fix them.
Everyone got a turn to blow up and fly their hot air balloons outside. We used a hotgun to help increase the buoyant force against the cold night air to increase the probability of our balloon
