ONLINE: LI Explorium STEAM Workshop: Let's Go Fly a KiteMonday August 3, 2020
2:00 PM until 2:45 PM
Grades 3 - 6
Join us for an interactive workshop in which we build and test some kites! What do you predict the best kite will be - one made of paper or plastic? Why does a kite need a tail - and what shape and weight of tail works best? Does a smaller kite fly best because it’s lighter, or does a larger kite fly better because it can catch more wind? What forces act on the kite to pull it in each direction - and can you feel them in your hands when you fly the kite?
For this workshop you will need:
- Copy paper/cardstock/construction paper
- Newspaper and/or plastic bag(s) (can be any size)
- Thin wooden sticks (at least 4) - these can be wooden dowels or sticks collected from the garden
- An outdoor space to work
