What is Engineering?
What is Engineering? This video is intended for High School Students, but can certainly be used in many different classrooms. In short, it is a great way to get your students thinking about Engineering in it's most basic form. How does someone become an Engineer? What inventions do we take for granted? things that define our routine every day. Begin a discussion about how Engineering is all around us, from the pencils we use, to the chairs we are sitting in, to the computer screen we are looking at now. All of these things were created by someone to solve a problem no matter how simple it may seem to us now. Comment down below and let us know what you want to see more of!


The animation was made by the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment at the University of Newcastle (http://www.newcastle.edu.au/engineering), working with illustrator Jeremy Ley (http://www.jeremyley.com) and creative director Nick Parker from Light Creative (http://www.lightcreative.com.au/).
