During the seventh annual STEM camp at Quantico Middle / High School, students developed  balloons filled with oatmeal, water, and red dye to simulate the brain, and had to develop a structure to protect the “balloon brains” from concussion.  The activity culminated in a competition where students dropped their balloon brains from the ladder of a fire truck supplied by the Quantico Fire Department. Three balloon brains tied for honors, surviving drops up to 21 feet. (Courtesy photo)
