This resource provides an introductory video with a STEM Ambassador reading the story of Rapunzel and a follow-on activity for children to carry out. In the activity children act as engineers in order to help Rapunzel escape from her tower. Children work in teams to think about creative solutions for helping her escape, then design and build them. They then test and evaluate their designs and make improvements. This activity links to D&T and also could be part of a cross-curricular learning based around Fairy Tales.
