Skipcha Elementary School – The red, white and blue RE/MAX hot air balloon, 70 feet tall and representing the worldwide RE/MAX network’s “Above the Crowd!®” philosophy of service, will tether (weather permitting) at Skipcha Elementary School, 515 Prospector Trail, Harker Heights, TX 76548, on Friday, March 13 at approximately 7:00 am to illustrate the principles of thermodynamics (hot air rises) to students.  The school is encouraging kids to bring their parents, and parents to bring their cameras.  The balloon pilot is a skilled aviator, but is also a great entertainer and educator.   He’ll gather the kids around to demonstrate the mechanisms that launch and navigate the balloon, as well as a brief history of mankind’s progress in achieving powered flight.
