What Does an Engineer Do?

What Does an Engineer Do?

Instead of the age old joke, How many ( ) does it take to screw in a light bulb, ask your students, "How many engineers does it take to make your favorite toy?" Their answers will surprise you! This PowerPoint program shows your students that at least five, and probably more, engineers were involved in the making of a toy truck. The last slide offers students the opportunity to think about all the engineers who were involved in making their own favorite toy!

BTEC Coursework Supporting Resources

If you have purchased my booklets for Unit 2 or Unit 7 then you may be interested in the supporting documents that I use alongside these to help teach and explain the various elements of the two coursework units. This package includes a tracking spreadsheet for each unit, PowerPoints to help teach each individual topic as well as theory items to assist in specific pages. This will save you over 50% if you were to buy these items individually. Thanks for looking. Feedback always appreciated.
