Mechanical Engineering

Run by Engineering For Kids






Tagged in: Kids, Science & Tech, After School, Arts & Crafts

During the Mechanical Engineering unit, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and improve a variety of machines and mechanical systems. Students learn basics of energy, traction, aerodynamics, and durability while constructing roller coasters, eggstreme defense vehicles, and an incredibly fast air-powered custom dragster.

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest disciplines of engineering. To this day, many of the inventions from Ancient Greece, China, and Middle East continue to be used today with few modifications. Mechanical engineers are responsible for designing parts of machinery, both on small and large scales, and maintaining these systems to achieve optimal performance.
