Once upon a time, Cinderella wore a glass slipper, a Big Bad Wolf blew down some houses, and Snow White ate a rotten apple. But scientifically, how would any of this things work? Join us for a parking lot party at Red Balloon with Sarah Albee, author of Fairy Tale Science, to find out the answer!
Fairy Tale Science invites young readers to explore the laws of physics, principles of chemistry, and wonders of biology in this collection of classic stories with a hands-on STEM twist. Sarah will chat about Fairy Tale Science and demonstrate one of the cool experiments featured in the book!
