What is Engineering - Assembly Powerpoint

This is a resource I have used with KS3 to explain what engineering is and provide examples of what engineers do. Useful as a starting point if you are about to start an engineering activity or engagement week.

Dr Tamsin Mather - volcanologist

A Volcanologist studies the impact of volcanoes on the atmosphere and our planet as a whole. Volcanologists often work to try to understand how to better predict eruptions and minimise the effects on people arising from them. They may use computer modelling or satellite imagery and often work on or around volcanoes...

Vicki Smith - physicist

Physicists are involved in a wide range of activities, including electronics, energy, space, transport, medicine and materials. Their work can involve designing and conducting experiments, simulating real-life problems and conditions in laboratories, or making a series of observations which are written up in...

Dr Martha Clokie - Microbiologist

Microbiologists study microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae and protozoa. They are involved in many areas of work, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, water and agriculture. A Levels: Biology, Maths, Chemistry

Dr Iain Staniland - marine biologist

Marine biologists study organisms in the world's oceans, ranging in size and complexity from viruses to whales. They examine how these organisms interact with the environment and with each other and measure the effects of human activities and environmental changes on marine ecosystems. A Levels: Biology, Maths,...

Dr Clare Postlethwaite - ice modeller

Computer modellers use computers to help them understand how the world works and to help predict what might happen in the future. Sea ice modellers use computer software to simulate how ice freezes, melts and moves and how different things such as ocean temperature affect it. A Levels: Maths, Further Maths, Biology...

Jamie Hannaford - hydrologist

Hydrologists are principally involved in monitoring, managing and conserving the Earth's freshwater resources. They study the quantity, trends and implications of freshwater in rivers, lakes, reservoirs, aquifers and glaciers. They also monitor and analyse rainfall. A Levels: Geography, History, Physics


Dr Matt Horstwood - geologist

Geosciences, or geology, are the scientific study of the structure, evolution and dynamics of the earth and its natural resources. A Levels: Biology, Geology, Chemistry

Dr Caroline Nichol - environmental physicist

Scottish Higher Qualifications: English, Chemistry, Biology, Geography, Economics

Dr Michael Pocock - ecologist

An ecologist is a biologist who studies the relationship between organisms and their environment. A Levels: Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Maths
