Kites go beyond beauty and fun. Their ancient forms and methods of construction, continuously used for over 2000 years, have been a rich contribution to science, technology and art through names that have become famous, like Graham Bell and Benjamin Franklin, and a multitude of anonymous others.

Ken Yamazato’s pedagogical (teaching) project was developed in the early 1990s based on the perception of the great potential for this activity to maintain a close relationship with arts, science and leisure.

In this work, the universe of kites is explored as an interdisciplinary pedagogical tool, fostering the interest in learning through a recreational subject, the rescue of old cultural values ​​and providing a greater social and family integration.
