I am a teacher of engineering with nearly 10 years experience. I endeavour to produce a range of resources that will help students to really engage with engineering as a subject and later, a profession. My resources are always produced to make it as easy as possible for you to change, edit add and remove content, or you can simply use the resources as they are. My main focus is to give you all of the information you will need to teach a subject, with as little fuss as possible.

Technical drawing activities

(1)
Tech drawing powerpoint that starts by showing the different types of line involved in engineering drafting and moves on to an animation that explains the methods behind drawing circles in isometric projection. Following this are several activities that use the technique, advancing in complexity. You could easily produce a handout from the frames in the slides, allowing for differentiation in ability. Feel free to cut, paste and change anything to suit your own style.
Technical drawing and CAD resources

Technical drawing and CAD resources

7 Resources
Technical drawing resources designed to save some £££. Useful for cover teachers needing resources for an unfamiliar subject. Can be used for the level 3 BTEC in engineering (unit 16) as it will meet most criteria. Please feel free to use resources however you wish and benefit from the excellent activities. See individual packs for more details on activities and sessions.
Engineering Drawing resource

Engineering Drawing resource

(1)
Resource for engineering or technical drawing. Includes large (124 slide) PPT file with lots of activities and information, and worksheets that follow some of the presentations activities. When I use this resource I hide the slides that I don't need and only use the parts that I want to use for a given lesson. Please feel free to chop, change and cut anything in the resource (you will notice that it isn't in widescreen but if you copy the slides you want into a newer version of PPT it should still look good)
Measurement Tolerances

Measurement Tolerances

(0)
A powerpoint presentation that shows how measurements are tolerance in engineering, technology and design. A few questions are included in the slides but more can be easily made by using the examples as a template. Used at the start of engineering measuring activities or before you introduce students to a practical activities in an engineering or design environment. Feel free to cut, chop and paste any of the slides as you see fit for your own purposes.
Micrometer and Vernier Calliper Measurement Worksheet
stevegowansstevegowans

Micrometer and Vernier Calliper Measurement Worksheet

(0)
An 8 page activity that shows the methods of reading micrometers and vernier callipers for design, technology, and engineering applications. Ideal as a cover activity during teacher absence. Teaches basic theory behind the measuring tools, the methods of reading them and the sheet includes activities for the student to practice reading the scales if there are no measuring tools available in class. Feel free to cut, chop, paste and change the sheet to meet your needs.
Engineering Drawing introductory activities

Engineering Drawing introductory activities

(0)
Basic, low level activities designed to give students confidence in reading and producing their own drawings in engineering. Starter activity is for students to identify the correct views. Drawing activities are for the students to convert isometric to orthographic projection, using guide lines - (you may need to adjust the contrast of your printer before printing, I had a small issue but it was fixed with a bit of adjustment) Feel free to chop, change and paste whatever you like to suit your own style.
Battery Technology
stevegowansstevegowans

Battery Technology

(0)
Presentation teaching information about battery technology, the materials involved and the reactions that take place in order to produce a charge. Suitable as an introduction to the subject, or as a cover teacher presentation - it's very easy to produce some questions or a short test on the subject to go with the slides. Feel free to repurpose anything in the slides to suit your own needs.
Measurement Bundle
stevegowansstevegowans

Measurement Bundle

4 Resources
A great way to introduce students to engineering measurement, tolerances and limits and fits. A great way for a cover teacher to easily teach with little notice - simply base some activities from the content in the packages. Can be easily repurposed to suit a wide range of teaching areas.
4 Engineering Based Starter Activities
stevegowansstevegowans

4 Engineering Based Starter Activities

(0)
4 individual Starter activities for Engineering/DT courses. Suitable for year 10 up, these starters are a good way of engaging students and assessing prior knowledge. I have used them on both BTEC and City and Guilds engineering courses. Ready to use - just print them and away you go. Areas covered - Machining, (Resistant) Materials, Material properties and manual handling (health and safety)
Casting and Forging Interactive Quiz

Technical Drawing Workbooks

(1)
Engineering/Technical drawing workbooks for 12-19 year old students (depending on previous knowledge, skills etc.) Comprehensive introduction to technical drawing covering topics such as - Sketching, isometric projection, orthographic projection, dimensioning and British standards. Good to use in the case of covering lessons as most of the activities are self explanatory. Many drawings have been used from textbooks - repurposed with original activities to develop skills in DT and technical drawing. Feel free to cut, paste and use any images, information and activities to suit your teaching.
