Lesson focuses on computer and mechanical engineering and explores how computer mice operate and how engineering provided an interface between man and machine.
Lesson focuses on the engineering behind elevators. Teams of students explore principles and requirements of vertical travel, then design and construct a working elevator to service a toy car garage using wheels, pulleys, string, cardboard and other materials.
Simple machines: their principles and uses.
Develop a working model of a nail clipper.
Lesson focuses on the engineering behind air traffic control systems. Students work in teams to evaluate data generated for a virtual air traffic system, and determine a plan to bring three planes safely through a set airspace. They then recommend engineering enhancement to the current system.
Lesson focuses on brakes, force, and friction, using bicycle rim brakes to demonstrate basic braking mechanisms to stop, slow, or prevent motion.
Lesson focuses on the concept of friction and the use of ball bearings to reduce friction.
Lesson focuses on issues civil engineers face, including critical load and how to reinforce the design of a structure to hold more weight.
Lesson focuses on the concept of force and the use of pulleys to reduce required force.
Lesson focuses on the engineering and operation of artificial heart valves, and the interface between man and machine.
