All About STEM NEWS
Primary: Engineering Fairy Tales
This resource collection developed by STEMFirst provides several engineering or D&T activities that are set in the context of popular fairy tales.
Each activity finds a problem that a character in the story has and asks children to come up with an engineering solution for the problem. Children then work together in teams to design and make their solutions. A reading of each tale is provided in videos from real-life engineers.
These activities are a great way of linking D&T with learning in English. The stories have been provided by BAE Systems, the Royal Navy, British Army and the RAF.
All About STEM works on lots of exciting STEM projects. As part of the STEM Learning family, we manage the STEM Ambassador Hub in Merseyside, Cheshire and Warrington, working closely with the regional Science Learning Partnerships in Merseyside and Warrington and Cheshire and Stockport.« Back To News
