COSHH in Engineering session

COSHH in Engineering session

Powerpoint and activities to fit an hours session, more or less depending on the level of students. Teacher will need to have knowledge of some of the materials used in the categories of COSHH. Described from an engineering perspective. Feel free to cut, paste and use the resources for any other purpose.

Technical drawing activities

Technical drawing activities

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 Workbooks

Technical Drawing Workbooks

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.

Materials Engineering Booklet

Materials Engineering Booklet

29 page Engineering materials booklet covering the main introductory principles of metals, grain structures and properties; including facts, information, images and diagrams. It goes from basic materials properties through to grain structure, crystallisation and mechanical properties. There are no activities in the booklet itself however they could be easily produced from the large amount of content. Booklet is suited for post 16 - Level 3 introductory classes or advanced Level 2 classes, it could even be purposed for GCSE chemistry students. Please feel free to cut, chop and paste anything in the booklet to suit your own needs.

Solidedge/Engineering drawing worksheet

Solidedge/Engineering drawing worksheet

A formative assessment worksheet featuring a range of isometric and orthographic projections that start simple and work up to complex. I produced this for a formative assessment during Solidedge teaching, in order to assess the progress of my whole cohort. I used a cloud based folder system for each student for me to assess the work. It could be easily be used for manual Technical drawing classes. Feel free to cut, paste and use any drawings, or sketches for other purposes.

Engineering Drawing resource

Engineering Drawing resource

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)

Turning Handout

Turning Handout

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.

Fracture in metals

Fracture in metals

Information slides that explain how modes of fracture can propagate through a material. Used for information only, I normally take the information from slides as and when I need it. I wouldn't use this to present to a class without putting your own spin on it. Please feel free to cut, paste and chop any part of the resources as you see fit.

Health and Safety case studies

Health and Safety case studies

Short case studies that can be used with all students to form opinions about regulations and procedures in the world of work. I copy each of the studies out, usually at the beginning of a course to start discussions about health and safety at work, before the students have had an opportunity to learn about the subject in depth. Please feel free to chop and change anything you like to suit your own style.
