The Factory

The Factory

by Lindsay Price

The Factory is efficient. The Factory runs like clockwork. The Time to Begin song always begins at 7 am. The official Greeting always takes place at 7:02. The Factory workers follow the rules and do their jobs to the letter.

Why shouldn’t they? They are humanoid robots programmed to be efficient and follow the rules. Robots will always do their jobs better than real people. And rules are what make the Factory productive.

Or do they? Rules come with red tape. And red tape can act like a wrench in the works…

Challenge your students physically with this futuristic tale.
