People have enjoyed making and flying kites for many centuries.

Did you know kites were invented in China around 2,800 years ago! They were used to measure distances and wind speeds.

Activity We love kites at Dundee Science Centre - why not have a go at making a kite today with our activity sheet.

If you need some inspiration then watch this video about the Kite Festival in Singapore and the kites the child built there.
