Seeing The Unseen - Radar. Practical, active group activity to discover how basic maths and physics help engineers to "see the unseen"

Group activity involving volunteers moving around a teaching space and using time, distance and speed measurements to locate a student taking on the role of an aircraft. 

Supports the use of Speed = Distance / Time and also the concept of radio waves travelling through space, giving practical meaning to...

PCB Manufacture

These resources introduce the topic of PCB manufacture Engineering and Design & Technology. They contains an overview of the different stages of PCB manufacture and a brief explanation of surface mount technology. The question sheet can be used alongside the presentation.

Automated machines at Brompton

This film looks at why automated machines, such as a CNC machine, are used in the production of Brompton bicycles. The need for space has resulted in the manufacture of some parts being sub-contracted, which can create quality control issues.

Manufacturing

Produced by the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), these images are useful for adding to documents, presentations or for use with an interactive whiteboard. Mainly simple line drawings, they can be cut and pasted into documents and image processing applications. The images in this resource are related to the...

3D Scanning

This video from Boxford demonstrates 3D scanning and reverse engineering of products using a 3D scanning machine. The 3D scanning machine is shown followed by the object, an ornamental cat, which is to be reverse engineered. Full 360 degree laser scanning of the ornament is performed. The scanned object is then...

Lean manufacturing

This film looks at how Brompton Bicycle introduced a system of lean manufacturing to manage production. This enables them to eliminate the waste by looking at every aspect of the design from the customer’s point of view and also reducing lead times. The film also explores the...

New technologies in design and engineering

This presentation can be used to introduce new and disruptive technologies to engineering students. It was based on BTEC Engineering but would also be relevant to GCSE Design and Technology / engineering. It contains an overview of hydrogen fuel cells, optic fibres, blended wing bodies, surface nanotechnology,...

What is structural engineering? Structural engineering for beginners

This presentation provides a great introduction to the work of structural engineers. Created by the The Institution of Structural Engineers, it provides an overview of the types of activities undertaken by structural engineers, examples of the impact that they make on society and provides an overview of the types...
