Learners' Corner

My name is Karen Wrigglesworth and I’m an award-winning author, engineer and technical storyteller. I get it that people often struggle to understand exactly what engineers do day-to-day. That’s where my idea to combine engineering and storytelling began.

I founded The Technical Storyteller to excite ordinary people about engineering and other technical topics, and to share the power of story to teach us how old and current innovations can be reused or improved to provide more resilient solutions for the future.

Take Me With You!

The Take Me With You! series is a highly valuable resource about engineering heritage in New Zealand.  The books are generously illustrated throughout.  Photos taken by the author offer an engaging entry point and ‘an engineer’s eye view’ into each of the stories.  

The stories told are important because, by helping us reflect on the past, they enable us to make informed decisions about the directions we want to take in the future.
