Rosie Revere, Engineer
Rosie Revere, Engineer Rosie Revere, Engineer

Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer. When her great-great-aunt Rose (Rosie the Riveter) comes for a visit and mentions her one unfinished goal--to fly--Rosie sets to work building a contraption to make her aunt's dream come true. But when her contraption doesn't fly but rather hovers for a moment and then crashes, Rosie deems the invention a failure. On the contrary, Aunt Rose insists that Rosie's contraption was a raging success. You can only truly fail, she explains, if you quit. 

Inspired by real-life makers such as Rosie the Riveter, Rosie Revere, Engineer is a celebration of STEM, perseverance, and passion, and champions girl power and women scientists. Touching on themes of never giving up and problem solving, Rosie comes to learn that her questions might not always lead to answers, but rather to more questions.
