Kite2The Kite Festival is back at the New York Mills School

This annual program sponsored by the Cultural Center has in the past included classes from NYM building and launching various types of kites with help, instruction and supplies from the Cultural Center.  This year, Tammy Olson’s Exploring Art class will be building and decorating paper kites that they will fly May 28 or 29, and new this year, Travis Ekren’s science classes will be launching air powered rockets outside the school on May 26th.

Kite1Both launch and flight activities use supplies provided by the Cultural Center.  Many kids have never flown a kite much less launched a rocket, so this is a great opportunity to incorporate art and science learning, all while having fun in the great outdoors.  Thanks to all Cultural Center donors for making this activity possible.
