)-- The RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon returns to Monroe Center Elementary School, 17500 E. Ill. Hwy. 72, in Monroe Center, Ill., on May 13 where the balloon crew will present an interactive educational program developed and sponsored by the RE/MAX real estate network in northern Illinois. The balloon and crew first visited the school in 2014.
The program will be presented at 8:30 a.m. in the school gymnasium and will familiarize the 140 students and school staff with various aspects of ballooning, including its history and the scientific principles involved. There also will be a demonstration on how the balloon functions and an opportunity to closely inspect balloon components, including the envelope and basket. The balloon envelope will be partially inflated, and there will be ample opportunities for photos.
