View Resource Educator's Corner: Engineering and the Guitar, Part I

This series of five introductory modules comes from Agilent Technologies' massive Educator's Corner Web site. It is mainly intended to teach high school students about some of the most fundamental principles of engineering, using a guitar to demonstrate concepts like frequency and tensile strength. At the same time, the material stresses the importance of critical thinking and taking an analytical...
View Resource Precision Machining

Basic machining processes are introduced on a Web site that is devoted to engineering fundamentals (1). Descriptions and illustrations of drilling, turning, grinding, and other common processes are provided for people with little to no prior machining knowledge. A waterjet is a non-traditional machining technology that uses high pressure streams of water with abrasive additives rather than solid...
View Resource Design Challenge Projects

Based at Cambridge University, the Engineering Design Challenges were created to give students the opportunity to experience working as part of a team on a problem in a similar manner to commercial design and project management. As part of their outreach to budding engineers, they have created these various projects to be used by teachers and students alike. Currently, there are three projects on...
