Storybook Science: Saving Rapunzel with STEM
Rapunzel is stuck in a tower, and needs SMART solutions to help her escape!

Have no fear, the Girls Inc. girls in Storybook Science are here!

Girls in this class used their engineering skills and imaginations to craft zip lines, construct roller coasters, piece together parachutes, and build bridges and slides in an all-out creative and STEM-focused effort to free Rapunzel from the tower.

Storybook Science combines STEM and literacy - two of the pillars of Girls Inc.'s SMART programming.
