Engineers Teaching Shop

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 Workbooks

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.
Engineering Drawing resource
stevegowans

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)
4 Engineering Based Starter Activities

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)
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/CAD activities

BTEC Level 1/2 - Unit 1 - The Engineered World Revision Booklet

(0)
Booklet that covers a wide range of the specification for the BTEC unit 1 - The Engineered World. All activities are fully answered already - before issuing to students you might want to spend bit of time deleting the answers to produce a student copy. I have done it this way to give you freedom of choice as to the information you leave in the book. Feel free to chop and change any of the activities that you wish to deliver as individual activities.
COSHH in Engineering session
