Join us at the House of Science to become an expert in all things kite!

During these workshops, we will explain where to locate Matariki in the night sky. We will then illustrate the importance of kite flying to Maori during this festival time. We will explore the science behind materials for kite building and how kites fly. Children will investigate what forces affect kite flying before using their learning to make a simple paper kite to fly during Matariki celebrations.

Spaces are limited - choose which session you want to attend and call House of Science on 07 571 0711 to book.

$2 to cover consumables.
