 Kite-making is a remarkably efficient teaching tool, integrating subjects like science, technology, engineering, arts and math within a single lesson. Experts from the world-class Drachen Foundation will provide a lecture and exhibit on the history of kites and a 3-hour hands-on workshop teaching the design and construction of four levels of kites. With their new-found skills, Kite Masters will write and submit lesson plans and toolkits to align with the Utah core and for future use by Utah educators. 

Kite Masters will also conduct the art of kite-making in classrooms and help thousands of kite-makers at various ethnic festival and community events through 2013. STEAM Kite Masters are wanted to devise and construct 'wind tunnels' to lanch kites at indoor and outdoor festivals and design and build the STEAM of Kite website.
