"It has been said that an engineer is a man who can do for ten shillings what any fool can do for a pound", Nevil Shute
Engineering at the Cutting Edge DVD

Engineering at the Cutting Edge DVD

Publisher: 4 Learning / Espresso Education

Features 5 x 25 minute programmes suitable for all Awarding Body specifications. Curriculum Connections: Design and graphical communication, engineered products, application of technology. Ed McCann, who is passionate about engineering and its role in shaping our future, presents the series in a very informal way, inspiring engineers to address his probing questions. Ed is a visiting lecturer of civil engineering design at Imperial College, London.

Programme 1: This programme looks at two amazing structures, the Millennium Bridge in London and the Falkirk Wheel in Scotland. Both used new revolutionary designs that had been tested using the latest technology, but one went to plan and the other didn't!

Programme 2: This programme looks at two automotive projects that show how important it is for designers to work with well proven standard car parts, yet still emerge with completely different products.

Programme 3: Why is it that when footballers are heading the ball they are missing the goad more today than in previous decades? Vaughan Lovelock asked himself these questions so many times that he decided to design a head band to improve heading accuracy.

Programme 4: Today's roller coasters are designed and tested in virtual worlds before being built. However, when they are built they must work safely first time, as there is no room to modify the ride after it has been built.
Programme 5: The programme follows two people as they have new artificial limbs fitted and show how they adjust to the changes they bring to their lives. Interactive Whiteboard compatible.
