The Challenge: Make a kite from natural products



Newton's Third Law states that for every action force, there exists a reaction force that is equal in magnitude but opposite in direction.

The kite is kept on the earth by the tension in the string and the force of gravity. The kite is kept in the air by lift. To raise and lower the kite in the air we can use lift by increasing and reducing the tension in the string.
