Let's Go Fly a Kite  

Posted by Wayne Bretski in

Herein two poor cell phone pictures of our kite flying are spliced together into one poor meta-cell phone picture.

This past week my class celebrated Winds-Day. Festivities included hanging flypaper and observing our catch, learning about the cause of wind, reading wind books together, folding paper airplanes and flying them with and against the wind, and flying kites.

It was very windy, so that was nice. Our flypaper catch was a little less exciting than our predictions, mostly sand and bugs. The result of our statistical analysis came to the shocking conclusion that we can throw paper airplanes farther with the wind at our back. And the kites were fun - fortunately there are no pictures of me sprinting through campus after a runaway Toy Story kite..
