We’ve Always Been Engineers
“When I was three or four years old, I got a new tricycle for my birthday. The next day, I took the bike completely apart. My mother panicked as she could not figure out how to put all these pieces back together – or how to explain this to my grandfather, who bought me the gift. A few hours later my grandfather arrived, only to find a completely reassembled tricycle. There were a few bolts and a washer left over, but it worked perfectly.”
