Engineering is Everywhere Posters

The aim of this short exercise is for the Guides to become aware of the somewhat hidden presence of engineering, and to highlight to them that examples of engineering are everywhere! For this activity please feel free to use the STEPS Posters (see attached)

1. Divide the company into groups
2. Give each group a different poster (see attached), paper and pen
3. Ask each group to record as many examples of engineering as they can identify in a given time
4. After the given time give each group the list of possible examples associated with the poster (see attached)
5. Each group to compare the two lists

Bring the company together, start a discussion on how engineering is everywhere. Were they amazed at how engineering touches so many aspects of our lives without our noticing! Ask them to share the examples of Engineering on their group poster.

Leaders hint: The central intention is not for them to be absolutely precise in their answers but to get them thinking, seeing and questioning.
