Civil Engineering Lesson Summary: Estimated Duration: Three class periods, 55 minutes each for instruction and group presentations Grade Content Area/Discipline: Technology Standard: Design Benchmark: : : B Recognize the role of engineering design and of testing the design process. Indicator: 3 Describe what an engineer does (e.g., analyze information found on engineering society Web sites). Content Area/Discipline: Science Standard: Science and Society Benchmark: C Give examples of how thinking scientifically is helpful in everyday life. Indicator: 4 Describe how the pursuit of scientific knowledge is beneficial for every career and in everyday life. Ohio Academic Content Standards 6 Civil engineering is a broad field containing many engineering sub-fields , such as transportation engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, and construction engineering. Civil engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, as well as water supply and sewage systems. They must consider many factors in the design process, from the construction costs and expected lifetime of a project, to government regulations and potential environmental hazards such as earthquakes. This two-day lesson introduces the broad applications of civil engineering as well as this profession as a career choice. Students will explore the ancient and modern history of civil engineering –one of the oldest engineering disciplines, as well as the “Seven Wonders of the Modern World,” which are all feats of civil engineering. On Day One, students will take a pre-assessment of their knowledge about civil engineering. They will log their observations as they view an eleven-minute video interview with a construction engineer from Dayton, Ohio. Day One ends with a research homework assignment. Day Two will involve group work researching the “seven wonders of the modern world” culminating in a group presentation.
