About this Grantee

Mr. DeField, Ms. Howe, and Ms. Townsend have developed an applied physics course that focuses on hot air ballooning and targets students who do not perform well in traditional science classes. Students research federal aviation laws and create prototypes of hot air balloons. In collaboration with two local balloon pilots, the students build and then fly a hot air balloon.
