Our Engineering & Design Taster Talk series has been developed for teachers to use with their class during tutor time. We've developed five talks, all under five minutes with a downloadable discussion activity and the opportunity to find out more about each of our academic presenters.

Taster talk: Great architecture by Daniel Wong

(0)
Using an ancient formula, Daniel Wong from the University of Bath, tells us how we can define great design and build sustainably for our future. ‘If architecture is to be our second skin, then it ought to make people feel relaxed and confident. A good environment will enhance your everyday activity.’ - Daniel Wong, Senior Teaching Fellow in architecture Learning outcomes how to recognise whether a building has been designed well how our construction industry could be more sustainable how buildings should make people feel what makes great architecture Our Engineering & Design Taster Talk series has been developed for teachers to use with their class during tutor time.

Taster talk: Energy harvesting by Dr Hamideh Khanbareh

(0)
Dr Hamideh Khanbareh from the University of Bath tells us how we can create small amounts of power from the world around us. ‘Energy harvesting technology is providing us with battery-free solutions. Batteries have a short life span, they are costly to maintain and they have recycling issues.’ - Dr Hamideh Khanbareh, Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering Learning outcomes the benefits of generating electricity on a small scale how we can use the environment around us to generate power the main four types of energy harvesting technologies how we can create new piezoelectric materials to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy Taster Talk series Our Engineering & Design Taster Talk series has been developed for teachers to use with their class during tutor time.

Taster talk: Building frequencies by Dr Paul Shepherd

(0)
Dr Paul Shepherd from the University of Bath tells us why structures move and shake, and how structural engineers can tune buildings to make them safe. ‘Skyscrapers are getting higher all the time and we are already building one a kilometre high, but it’s not the strength of the materials that’s the limiting factor.’ - Dr Paul Shepherd, Lecturer in Civil Engineering Learning outcomes why civil engineering is important what civil engineers build why buildings move and shake how engineers can make tall buildings safe Taster Talk series Our Engineering & Design Taster Talk series has been developed for teachers to use with their class during tutor time.

Taster talk: Tomorrow’s electronics by Dr Matt Cole

(0)
Dr Matt Cole from the University of Bath takes us from the origins of the transistor to the new materials that will power the electronics of the future. ‘Nano technology is set to lay the foundations for the next generation of electronics. In these electronics we’ll see new kinds of bio-compatible, flexible, truly-transparent electronics.’ - Dr Matt Cole, Lecturer in Electronic & Electrical Engineering Learning outcomes the origins of the transistor the increasing needs of society for smaller and more powerful electronic devices how and why we are developing new materials what the electronics of the future might look like Taster talk series Our Engineering & Design Taster Talk series has been developed for teachers to use with their class during tutor time.

Taster talk: Dealing with waste water by Dr Ana Lanham

(0)
Dr Ana Lanham from the University of Bath, talks us through what happens once our used water goes down the drain and how engineers are changing the way we manage this important resource. ‘We are moving towards a society that needs to be more sustainable and we have to stop treating waste water as a burden but rather as an opportunity.’ - Dr Ana Lanham, Lecturer in Chemical Engineering Learning outcomes how we categorise water once it’s been used the waste water process how we can use water better what engineers are doing in this sector Taster Talk series Our Engineering & Design Taster Talk series has been developed for teachers to use with their class during tutor time.
