Kites in Flight

A kite is more than just a scrap of paper or plastic tossed about in the air. It is a carefully engineered craft that balances four forces to achieve stable flight in defiance of the law of gravity. Most students are familiar with kites and many have flown them successfully. This vibrant slideshow introduces the four forces of flight (thrust, drag, lift, and gravity) using a kite as a reference. Use this slideshow to introduce a kite building unit or add some STEM to a springtime art or writing project.
