The Engineering Box is a reverse engineering kit that takes students through the design process beginning with the disassembly of a Dyson machine – they learn how a machine works by taking it apart. It contains:
– 1 Dyson vacuum cleaner
– 7 Dyson Carbon Fiber Turbine Heads
– 15 Tangle-free Turbine Tools
– 45 screwdrivers
– Teacher’s Pack
– Posters for the classroom
The Engineering Box and lessons are available to classrooms completely free of charge. The Engineering Box is loaned to a school for 3 weeks at a time. It is ideally suited for students in 7th-12th grade, but can be adapted for any classroom.
The lessons in the Engineering Box are aligned to the Common Core and to the Next Generation Science Standards.
