Did Rapunzel really think that throwing her hair down to the prince was the only way she was going to get out of that tower?
Perhaps she knew how strong her hair was because of the numerous hair strength experiments she had done? Could she have tried to create a zipline out of there? Or could have Rapunzel’s parents avoided this whole catastrophe and grown their own herbs?
The answer is yes – Yes through science!
Many children and adults love fairy tales but perhaps not many of us have really thought of the possibilities of these fairy tales changing for the better.
STEM is an increasing focus in schools and can be used in so many ways at home too.
I loved the creativity of this book series as not only does it capture children’s imagination, it also integrates many aspects of science – living things, engineering, the scientific method, design, hypothesising and creativity!
It’s something different – combining literacy and science – and a great way to engage young children!
