Investigating careers in Tesla

This resource investigates careers in Tesla and Hyperloop One, including in particular the engineering roles that are available. Students are able to see the wide number of roles that Tesla needs to function as a company, and how the Engineering roles are critical and numerous within the organisation. Several case studies of Engineers from Tesla are used. Students take on an engineering role related to Tesla / Hyperloop One's work on magnetic levitation technology, they attempt to produce a simple levitation model using fixed magnets showing how a train can be free of friction on a track. Students continue to produce a fact file that demonstrates their knowledge of engineering companies. This resource has not been produced by Tesla or Hyperloop One.
