Essential Questions

What do engineers do?

What type of engineer would I like to be, if I had to choose?


SWBAT identify critical skills for a variety of engineering jobs

SWBAT choose what type of engineering job might be the best fit for them


  1. Today you’ll watch several videos about engineers. Save a copy of this Google Doc . The document has a list of videos showing engineers and what they do. You’ll be watching five of the videos. They are very short and there are a number of them to choose from.

  2. For each video, you’ll write what type of engineering the person shown in the video does. Then you’ll go to this site to help you describe what that type of engineer does. If you can’t find the description on that site, go to this page with additional descriptions.

  3. Note: Out of the 5 engineers you choose, only two may be the same type of engineers.

  4. Then you’ll rank how interesting the job is to you on a scale of 1 – 10.

  5. Don’t skip the last question about which engineer you like most. When you’re done, submit the Google Doc in Schoology.
  6. There are a total of 26 engineers listed, but you do not have to watch and answer questions for all of them. You need to view the videos for at least 5 of the engineers listed below and answer the questions for those five videos.
