Save lives as an engineer
Find out how engineers who work in disaster response save lives on a massive scale. This Tomorrow’s Engineers poster and accompanying teacher booklet, activities and a lesson plan will help students to understand the scale and impact of disaster response engineering.
Many types of engineering are employed in helping communities affected by disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and avalanches. From designing equipment and technology used to find and rescue victims, to providing shelter and transport networks, restoring electricity and sanitation and creating medical devices, detection systems and buildings that can withstand extreme pressure, engineers save hundreds of thousands of lives.
