In the ClassroomDiscover the many free resources on this site as part of career exploration lessons. View videos together, or have students view on their own. Take a virtual field trip to a manufacturing plant to learn more about design and the manufacturing process. Modify student learning and challenge them to create a simple infographic sharing information about manufacturing careers using Easel.ly, reviewed here, or redefine learning by having them create an multimedia, interactive poster using Lucidpress, reviewed here. You could also modify student learning by asking them to use Fakebook, reviewed here, to create a "fake" page similar in style to Facebook about a week in the life of an engineer or designer.
