Rosie Revere, Engineer is the story of a young girl who is an aspiring engineer. This module uses creative movement to explore engineering. Students will also learn about Rosie the Riveter and her significance in history. Like Rosie the engineer, students will tinker and construct, keeping in mind that it takes a series of small parts, like gizmos and gadgets, to make a final product.
