Alexander Graham Bell-Come Fly a Kite!

Chebucto St, Baddeck


Discover the role kites played in Alexander Graham Bell’s experiments with flight and learn about his giant tetrahedral kite. Children are invited to create, decorate and fly a kite, which is theirs to keep in our kite-making workshop. For teens and families, why not take kite-making to a whole new level by building and decorating your own four-celled tetrahedral kite, similar to those Bell used in his flight experiments. All kite-making workshops are offered daily in July and August.
