Product Description

Experience the power of the sun with a balloon that magically (Scratch that) scientifically floats! Fill the balloon with air, set out on a sunny day, and before you know it the Solar Balloon begins to fly!
Experience the power of the sun with a balloon that magically (Scratch that) Scientifically floats!

Fill the fifty-foot balloon with any kind of air and then take it out to an open space on a calm, clear, sunny day.

As the sun's rays hit the dark surface of the balloon, heat is absorbed and the air inside begins to warm up.

Since warm air is less dense than cool air, the balloon begins to float higher and higher! - It's an astonishing sight, even for adults!

Demonstrate buoyancy, convection, thermodynamics, and solar power. Use it to teach the Bernoullis Principle and the Pascals Principle.

Give your science class an exciting outdoor learning experience or even mesmerize the judges at the science fair.

The Solar Balloon turns scientific learning into high-flying excitement you can see!

      this is a gift for my 13y old nephew so I have no idea on how cool this balloon is, but I think I would really like it.

      Lots of fun and easy to use!
      Feb 13, 2017

      I bought this toy for my 9-year old daughter, and we have had lots of fun playing with it at the park on sunny days this summer. Once the huge (25 ft) sausage begins to warm, it floats! This happened so quickly and so dramatically, it was great fun. The only down side is that it tears fairly easily, though small rips can be repaired with packing tape. And you need a big, wide open space to play in--no trees or wires. It's easy to store; just undo one end, let out the air and roll it up to wait for next time.

      The items I purchased were for students in my 7th and 8th grade science classes. They have been much more engaged and love to see science in action!
