Equipment Needs:
Basics:Typically, we fill a single balloon with hydrogen generated from an old weather balloon kit and using a gum out can as an engine. Running the hose from the can to the balloon through ice, snow, or water is a good idea.
Variations:We could get actual cylinders of hydrogen which might let us do this on a much larger scale.
