Go Fly a Kite with GALILEO!
March 30th is the first day of National Kite Month. You can celebrate by flying a kite, or, if the weather is still chilly, you can still read about the interesting history of kites. GALILEO can help.
Learn how to make and fly a kite in Encyclopaedia Britannica. Just search for kite.
Search Discover GALILEO for articles about building and flying kites. Just search for kites and use Subject on the left to limit articles to the subject of kites (this removes the book reviews).
Finally, for the K-12 schools and others who have access to SIRS Discoverer, students can find art and science projects with kites along with articles about the history of kites. Just search for kite.
We hope these resources will inspire you to celebrate!
