ENGINEERING is all around us.
Every time we get on a bus, train or cycle to school, we use machines that were designed and tested by teams of people to make sure they work properly. The UK has produced many famous engineers who have designed and built seemingly impossible structures, helping shape the world we live in.
Thanks to engineers, for example, we know that high-speed railway tunnels must be the right shape to stop powerful sonic booms forming at the entrances.
This half term at the National Railway Museum, meet 100 reallife engineers working on exciting projects such as HS2 – a new highspeed railway for the UK – and see how people use engineering skills every day. Maybe you’re already an engineer – you just didn’t know it.
