New! Once-Upon-A-Time Contest!!

Re-Engineered Fairy Tales

Fairy tales, legends, and nursery rhymes are popular reading and part of our heritage. But how would some well known stories be different if engineers --who design, build, and manufacture just about everything --were involved? Image if...The three little pigs had known something about structures and materials ...Cinderella worked in a “smart” house with the latest technology and automation...Hansel and Gretel had the global positioning system for their walk in the woods...Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother had a home security system, or...if the Pat-a-Cake Baker had a bread machine.

So...once upon a time there was this engineer......
