Tag along with Cris Benton's kite aerial photography rig to take a peek at Rebecca Raptor's cabin, then build a truly tetrahedral box kite out of straws and Strawbees.
Just about anything lightweight and robust can fly in a strong breeze. We show you how to make a few designs in today's kite lab. You should change these and make them your own, and share what you make on the Maker Camp Community Page.
Watch out for a trolley traffic jam as we look back on the projects you made yesterday.
