Building Tetrahedral Kites
Working in teams of four, learners build tetrahedral kites following specific instructions and using specific materials.
In this activity, learners build a sled kite that models a type of airfoil called a parawing.
Make a Garbage Bag Kite
Make a kite out of a garbage bag, shower curtain, painting tarp--anything light, thin, flexible and plastic!
In this engineering/design activity, learners make a kite, fly it, and then work to improve the design. Learners explore how their kite design variations affect flight.
Control a Bird’s Flight
In this engineering design challenge, learners make a bird and then control its flight with attached strings.
Crazy About Kites
In this activity, learners build a kite out of paper, change it, and try to make it fly even better. With their new knowledge of kite making, students can then go on to create their own kite designs.
