Science Week 2019

We had an amazing time during 2019’s Science Week delivering our STEAM kite workshops to over 1200 primary school children. Our 60 minute workshops covered.. what flies?  How do things fly? Why do things that go up must come down? We built our own paper aeroplane and even designed our own proper kite to fly and take home!  How awesome was that?
