Kite Application for the Regional Kite Festival
Thanks to the generosity of Flight Night, the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance is pleased to offer up to 350 (total) elementary school teachers across Oklahoma the opportunity to receive a classroom set of kites. The goal of the program is to incorporate STEM across the curriculum. Sky introduces students to the history of kites and to James Banning, an Oklahoma hero who was the first African American pilot to fly coast to coast in 1932. Students gain hands-on knowledge of the math and science behind kite design, the history of kite use, the forces that enable kites to soar and the role kite flying played in inspiring James Banning.

Up to 50 Oklahoma teachers will be invited to attend the May 3 Kite Festival hosted by the University of Tulsa.

Deadline to apply is April 1. Teachers will be notified mid-April.

If you are chosen to participate you will receive a curriculum outline with activities for each day of the week leading up to the Kite Festival.
Monday - History & Scientific Uses - James Banning
Tuesday - Kites in Various Cultures
Wednesday - Kites and Other Aircraft
Thursday - Poster decorating/Kite building contest
