Success Story

Big Lift Agencies Partner to Create Dynamic & Inspiring Fairy Tale Engineering Programing!

Bay Area Discovery Museum and San Mateo County Libraries created engaging STEAM curriculum utilizing the “Think, Make, and Try” construction process used by Daly City The Big Lift programs. Daily during Fairy Tale Engineering Week scholars listened to a fairy tale then used the “Think, Make, and Try” strategy to engineer solutions to help the fairy tale characters. For example, kindergarteners designed “wolf-proof” baskets so Little Red Riding Hood could make it to Grandmother’s house. First graders used design skills to help the Gingerbread Man safely cross the river. Second graders designed a new Baby Bear chair and created a door latch to keep Goldilocks out.
