Engineering is Everywhere Poster
This activity will help the Guides to become aware of the somewhat hidden presence of engineering, and to highlight to them that examples of engineering are everywhere!

• Photocopy posters (see overleaf)
• Divide the Unit into groups of 2/3
• Give each a poster, pencil and paper
• In two minutes Guides list as many examples of engineering as possible that they can see
• Bring Guides back into a circle

 Were they amazed at how engineering touches so many aspects of our lives without our noticing!
 Share their findings with the Unit
 The intention is not for the Guides to be absolutely precise in their answers but to get them thinking, seeing and questioning.

Typical examples (taken from the ‘Engineering is Everywhere’ poster provided by STEPS: (see overleaf)
