Summer Transportation Institute: Kite Building
Students at the Summer Transport Institute built kites on Thursday, July 16 as part of their learning curriculum this summer. Each week students are learning about different modes of transportation, and during that week students learned about air travel. I spoke to a counselor, K.C Shelton, who said, “We talked about space travel the day before, and students were incredibly invested in the conversation.” I also got the time to take photos of students as they flew kites inside, learned how to build kites from online sources, and worked in groups to complete their assignment. Everyone appeared to be having fun as they constructed their projects, and I had nice time covering them as well.
