Building Tetrahedral Kites. Grades 6-8.
Rushton, Erik; Ryan, Emily; Swift, Charles
Working in teams of four, students build a tetrahedral kite following a specific set of directions and using specific provided materials. Students use basic processes of manufacturing systems-- cutting, shaping, forming, conditioning, assembling, joining, finishing, and quality control--to manufacture a complete tetrahedral kite within a given time frame. Evaluation of the project involves the efficiency of the team as well as the finished product. This activity requires a 45-90 minute time period for completion. (Author/SOE)
