A Victorian Fairy Tale Challenge Solved Using Simple Machines
Explore a brief history of the Fairy Tale before delving into one of the Victorian era's most famous tales of mystery, fantasy, and adventure. Once we’ve read our fill of the fantastic, we’ll settle into identifying one fairy tale character’s main challenge (whether on the side of “good” or the side of “bad”) and then design and build a contraption to solve the character’s problem. We will learn about and then apply the 6 Simple Machines to engineer a happy (or not so happy) ending using the power of STEM and a collection of recycling brought from home.
Lured in by the prospect of magical adventures and STEM?
