Goldilocks and the Three Bears

This resource provides an introductory video with a STEM Ambassador reading the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and a follow-on activity for children to carry out. In the activity children think like engineers in order to help Goldilocks build a chair that seats ALL the bears at once. First children find the problem that needs solving, then they come up with designs that can solve this. They consider the special features required by each of the bears and of the purpose of the chair. They then work together to build, test and improve their design. They communicate their findings explaining their reasons for the features of their design.
