Mr. McCasland isn't only our WINS Education Coordinator, but is also  a recognized expert on kites. He taught us about their history, and told us that the ancient Chinese used them thousands of years ago to frighten their enemies!

  He also told us about how the use of kites in meteorology was pioneered right here on Big Blue, where much was learned about upper atmospheric winds.
