Kites have a history that spans thousands of years of learning, adventure, and experimentation in aviation. Today, kites can be used in the classroom to teach a wide variety of subjects. Kites can be used for relaxation or as an exciting vehicle to carry physics, mathematics, materials science, arts, crafts, and weather skyward! This website is for teachers and kite flyers who visit classrooms and wish to use kites as a vehicle for instruction. With this seminar, you can bring that excitement to you.
