Astonish your friends, fellow kite flyers and the spectators on the kite field with your wild and original constructions. Plan, build and test kites again and again to determine which design is best. Experiment with how different bridle configurations affect the stability and maneuverability of your kite. The Thames and Kosmos' Kite Dynamics kit allows your imagination to fly free!
Learn about lift, drag, Bernoulliís principle, and the physics and history of flying kites. Build a kite ferry and a kite glider. Calculate how high your kite is flying, and determine the air temperature way up there.
The experiment manual will tell you how the kite sails fit together and will give you some ideas for simple kites you can build. After you have built those, you can brainstorm up your own kite designs, build them and test them!
A 32-page full-color Experiment Manual guides aspiring kite engineers through kite assembly methods and nine experiments.
