Get to know Alexander Graham Bell’s invention process to build his magnificent tetrahedral kite. Learn about the different forces at work for the invention to work through making and play. This will help you understand the forces while your kite is in flight and help optimize your future designs. Invent your own kite and write down your discoveries and everything you learned.
The projects built are designed to encourage experimentation of rebuilding from the first original design rather than making it only once. The true intention is to innovate on your own version to contribute to the long timeline of inventors. Unlock different inventions and building techniques as you progress through the activity booklet. Learn how the project works, sketch your ideas in a journal, and engage in the invention process with your ideas.
Construct a modular, fractal structure with tetrahedral shapes.
Build the shapes that have intrigued philosophers, mathematicians and scientists for centuries.
