On Monday kindergarten and first grade students at the Chilmark School took their youthful expertise to the air. As part of a STEM project, standing for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the children collaborated on kite making. They were given 25 pennies to spend on materials for each kite and the designs were all their own.

The kids were divided up into teams of two and they kept tabs throughout the experiment on the average height for the flock of kites and noting which design flew the highest and which one flew, well, the least highest.
