I am teaching a Hands-on Aerodynamics class to 9-12 year olds as part of a summer program at our county museum. A little theory with lots of hands on demonstrations for aerodynamic forces and Bernoulli's Principle.
The focus, of course, is on making paper airplanes and kites for the youth to fly. I enjoyed your book and for the first time built a kite from scratch, thanks.
For the class, we are going to make two of your small skewer kites since they are so simple to make and I want to let them try tandem flight with two kites if they want after flying the first.
Not an exciting story but a fun one and hopefully some of the youth will continue trying their hand at flying.
Yes, your link is on the reference sheet of web sites I am handing out and credit giving when building the 1-skewer diamond kite.

As mentioned earlier, there's more kite-making on this site than you can poke a stick at :-)
Want to know the most convenient way of using it all?
The Big MBK E-book Bundle is a collection of downloads—printable PDF files which provide step-by-step instructions for many kites large and small.
Every kite in every MBK series.
