Siegfried Kite Festival

Help us fill the Oklahoma skies with kites!

That's a wrap!
We have given out all the kite kits for 2024. Stay tuned for Siegfried Kite Festival events held by Tulsa County Parks this spring and summer, powered by TRSA!

Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance is excited to offer kite kits and additional resources for schools to host their very own Siegfried Kite Festival! Thanks to the generosity of our donors, educators can request FREE kite kits and access a collection of online resources to help teach the science and history of flight, as well as the cultural and historical significance of kites.

Open to any educator, school, or youth-serving organization in Oklahoma. Priority is given to those in the Tulsa Metro Area.


Class Set of Kite Kits:

Class sets come in bundles of 25. These kits include kite sails, wooden spars, kite string, a roll of kite tail, and instructions for students to build a Dermer Sled kite. You’ll need to provide tape and, if desired, permanent markers to decorate the kites. Teaching resources are online for anyone to use, which include a slide deck with historical and cultural relevance of kites and the science of flight, and additional resources for teaching flight concepts from sources like NASA. Recipients will be asked to post on social media and tag @TulsaSTEM during the implementation of the program.


The anticipated distribution of kites and kits is mid to late April, and you should plan to use these materials with students before the end of the school year unless other arrangements have been made and communicated to TRSA, such as for use in a summer camp. This application will remain open until all kites are granted.


At your location! You choose the day/time/place to build and fly kites with students. We’d love to see your photos which you can email to or post on social media using @TulsaSTEM. Students and families can also participate in kite festivals through the Tulsa Parks and Recreation Department… Stay tuned and watch social media for more details!


You must pick up your kites from TRSA’s office on the 2nd floor of the Tandy YMCA, 5005 S. Darlington Ave., Tulsa, OK, 74135 within one week of your order being processed, or your order will go back into stock to be given to another teacher, school, or organization. Kites will only be mailed to recipients located 50 miles or more outside the Tulsa Metro. 


Free! All materials are provided free of charge. Kites must be made available to students at no charge. You may not resell kites or charge students to participate.
