Engineers are Inventors!
  • Engineers use science and math to solve real
    world problems!
  • What are some of the types of engineers youve
    heard of?
  • Possibly
  • Chemical, electrical, mechanical, software,
    civil, biomedical, and environmental. AND MANY
    MORE!
  • Look around you, virtually every manmade
    contraption you see was conceived of and created
    by an engineer!

10
Now lets take a look at some real life engineers
and what theyre working on right now!
11
Separating Oil from Water
  • Di Gao, a chemical engineer at the University of
    Pittsburg, invented a plastic-coated cotton
    material that could clean up the Gulf.

12
Designing Better Cars
  • Marcus Ashford, a mechanical engineer at the
    University of Alabama, has invented a car engine
    with 80 less exhaust emissions.

13
Cleaning Up the Ocean
  • Alexandria Boehm is an environmental engineer who
    works on ways to clean up oceans near where
    people live.

14
Designing Space Colonies
  • Kimberly Jones is a civil engineer working on
    purifying water so that we can one day go to
    Mars!!!

15
Controlling Computers with Thoughts
  • Daniel Moran, a biomedical engineer at Washington
    University, has invented a way to play video
    games using only the human mind!

16
Listening for Cancer
  • John Viator, a biological engineer, has invented
    a way to hear cancer cells.

17
The Engineering Design Process Loop
Redesign
Identify the Problem
Present Your Design
Research the Problem
Test and Modify Design
Find Possible Solutions
Construct an Initial Design
Select One Solution
18
You will be an Engineer!
  • Throughout this curriculum, you will answer
  • 1. What is the problem that we have?
  • 2. What can you find out about the problem?
  • 3. What ideas are there already out there that
    could help us solve the problem?
  • 4. How can you use those ideas to determine a
    solution?
  • 5. What would your design look like?
  • 6. Build and test it. Does your design work?
  • 7. Show others!
  • 8. Make it better!
