Kites are deceptively simple. They can be used in so many ways for STEM education as well as activities such as building kites and flying kites. When you make the right kite you can fly it indoors at walking speed and outdoors under an infinite blue sky.

Kites in the Classroom

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 as an exciting vehicle to carry physics, mathematics, materials science, arts, crafts, and weather skyward! This web site is for teachers and kite flyers who visit classrooms and wish to use kites as a vehicle for instruction.


Indoor Kite Flying

Indoor performances that merge kites, music and precise flying techniques make this a fascinating show of accuracy and tricks that takes performance art to new heights.
