In this math activity, students examine the three dimensional drawing in order to investigate the basic concepts of orthographic projection.
Students examine the discipline of biomedical engineering or bioengineering. They complete worksheets by participating in reading background information and completing a hands on activity. They design a prototype of a cast to set a broken bone.
High schoolers design and build full-size boats made out of two-liter plastic bottles, chicken wire, and plywood. Then they race the boats, with the boat's designers "manning the hull", in the school's swimming pool.
Young scholars apply computer-assisted design programs to develop sketches and technical drawings for a three-bedroom house. Working together, they develop strategies for presenting their designs, investigate building codes, and hone skills using design software during this 16-20 week program.
Learners perform mathematical calculations to design safety device or enclosure to protect an egg as it is rolled down a ramp at increasing slopes.
Students investigate the engineering design process and the relationship between distance, time, and speed. Using a generic car base, small groups design a device that will protect an egg on or in the car as it is rolled down a ramp at increasing slopes.
Students use a six-step problem solving method to design a box/container. They are given the criteria for evaluation when presented with the problem. Students keep a notebook on processes, procedures, material, cost, design, machines, safety, and other information related to the activity. Student work is displayed throughout the building for viewing by students, teachers, and administrators.
Learners design and construct a Rube Goldberg machine that accomplishes a simple task in at least ten steps. They view and discuss various Rube Goldberg designs, identify types of simple machines, and in small groups produce a schematic design labeling the parts and functions, and construct a working prototype of their design.
In this examining cubes worksheet, students determine the number of cubes to create a stack to specifications.  They calculate the volume of given cubes.  This three-page worksheet contains 7 multi-step problems.
Students explore oil field applications of Shape Memory Alloys.  In this engineering lesson students divide into groups and research mini research applications then complete a project. 
In this exploring projective geometry worksheet, young scholars use computer software for instruction, then answer 9 questions about 3D drawings.
Three class periods are required to carry out this science lesson on glacial movement, the Great Lakes basin, and the lock system that allows travel on the lakes. It is an ambitious undertaking as your class experiments with a glacier movement table and constructs a manual lock system. The resource links no longer work, but there is plenty of material to make a complete mini-unit for your earth science or engineering class. 
Students build three types of towers, engineering them to hold an egg one foot high for 15 seconds. They discover that engineering designs are subject to constraints such as time, money and size specifications. For this activity students have to design and construct a tower with two of these constraints.
Students explore the concept of navigation in these two activities.
Students engage in a lesson that is concerned with the concept of navigation while research is conducted with the use of a variety of resources. The information is used to expand their perspective of the applications for navigation. The lesson includes background information for the teacher to use.
Middle schoolers investigate the force of compression and how it acts on structural components through a hands-on group project. They use everyday products such as paper, toothpicks, and tape to construct a structure that will support the weight of a cinder block for 30 sec.
Students conduct radar antenna experiments and graph their results. After reinforcing an antenna made from foam insulation, they test its torque threshold. They discuss the results and use the information to construct a sturdier tower.
Students engage in a lesson which introduces them to the five fundamental loads: compression, tension, shear, bending, and torsion. They see that engineers must consider many forces when planning and actually building a structure. Student teams build a simple tower using cardboard tubes and a glue stick. They subject the tower to a variety of stresses.
Middle schoolers investigate torsion as a force acting upon structures. They listen to a teacher-led lecture, draw beams on graph paper, design a radar antenna tower that resists bending and torsion, and answer investigation questions about their design.
Students experiment with the five fundamental load types that can act on structures. They use foam insulation blocks to which they apply the forces and draw the fracture patterns. They determine the telltale marks of failure that is caused by each load type. They determine how engineers have to plan for these forces when designing buildings.
