Now that we know what engineers do (solve problems, design and make useful items, make our lives easier) we went on a look-out walk in our locality. We were hoping to spot things that have been designed and/or made by engineers to solve some local problems.
Here are some of the many things we spotted on our walk:
Our school garden boxes.Traffic lights (we had a good look at how the colours change in the pedestrian lights in the opposite way to the lights shining for the drivers of cars and other vehicles. This is to keep us safe when crossing the road).
Houses (detached, semi-detached, 2 story and 3 story, dormer houses).
