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

(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.
Ceramics - Information presentation.

Ceramics - Information presentation.

(0)
Presentation with lots of ceramics manufacturing information. Designed to be used with mid level materials students (BTEC Level 3, more or less) Lots of information so I would cut out the slides that you want and make your lessons around that. Feel free to chop and change anything you like.
Keys and Keyways - Mechanical Engineering

Keys and Keyways - Mechanical Engineering

(0)
A presentation and hand-out that describes the use of a range of keys, keyways, taper lock bushes and frictional turning devices. Used for students studying on BTEC and City & Guilds engineering courses, in 45 minute to 1 hour sessions, but could also be used for automotive, aerospace etc... Resources have been made to make it easy to customise. I removed all of my personal things from the slides and hand-out so changing the format of activities etc. is easy. Feel free to cut and paste anything you want from the resources.
Turning Handout

Turning Handout

(0)
An old turning assessment activity designed to be used with the old NVQ courses. I still use this when introducing students to the lathe as it helps them to think about the functions and risks. Please cut and paste any of the information and drawings in the handout and use them as you feel best reflects your course.
Engineering Drawing resource
stevegowansstevegowans

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)
Materials Revision Sheet

Materials Revision Sheet

(3)
Worksheet placed onto a powerpoint slide, revises properties of materials, electron configuration and the periodic table. Good to use as a starter activity or as a quick quiz, for use it can be printed as it is or printed as an a3 sheet. Feel free to chop, change, cut or paste anything you might find useful.
Adhesives for use in Engineering and Automotive industries

Adhesives for use in Engineering and Automotive industries

(0)
Activity and Information sheet on the subject of Adhesives. There is a description and activities on all kinds of engineering adhesives to aid in teaching students of BTEC and City & Guilds in engineering (or pretty much any skilled trade where adhesives would play a part) Feel free to chop and change whatever you like to suit your own preferences.
Properties of Materials worksheet

Properties of Materials worksheet

(0)
Aimed at year 12 City and Guilds Engineering Students/BTEC students studying Engineering. Research activity that focuses on properties of materials. I taught with a discussion and then a computer research session (using the hand-out) followed by a Q/A session for assessment.
Renewable energy sources and Climate Change

Renewable energy sources and Climate Change

(0)
6 presentations and a document that cover the importance of renewables energy development. Explained as an introductory pack of presentations which are designed to inform a whole range of ages. Ideal for a cover teacher or as an introduction to the world of renewables. Useful in all areas from 8 to 19 (Good for BTEC, City and Guilds, GCSE subjects and more) The solar power document is designed to be used for revision but could be repurposed to create activities and quizzes. All of the presentations are easily editable and could be used for a wide variety of lessons. Feel free to cut, chop and paste anything you like from the slides or document in order to meet your personal needs.

Plastics - forms, properties and manufacturing processes

(0)
Lots of information about how plastics are formed, what they are used for and what they are made from. Designed for use with 6th form students - but if theres anything that I need from the presentation I generally cut it out and use for a specific lesson. Feel free to cut and paste anything you want from the presentation to meet your needs.
