Tetrahedral Kites

The STEAM Class just finished a unit on Air and Space Technology by constructing a large Tetrahedral Kite.  A tetrahedral kite is a multicelled rigid box kite composed of tetrahedral shaped cells to create a kind of tetrahedral cell. This type of kite was invented by Alexander Graham Bell on the road with experiments for manned flight.  One of Bell's larger Tetrahedral kite contained 3,393 cells and was 40'  long.
