3.7 Aftermath
The I-35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis in August 2007, resulting in at least 13 deaths, illustrates the importance of structural integrity. This unit looks at the investigation that followed the collapse of the Silver Bridge over the Ohio River in 1967 which demonstrates how the study of safe design and the assessment of components and structures under load is of increasing importance in engineering design.

Molly Brown: Biography of a Changing Nation
The true story of Margaret Brown transcends the limitation of myth, revealing a woman of extraordinary spirit and complexity who embodied the issues of her times and the power of individual action. This reformer worked hard to make a difference and her confidence made it possible for her to help others and this 2:30 video helps explains these. Unfortunately, it just touches on them so this video could be used as a discovery lesson since it includes reformers, mining, and even the Titanic.

1.2.8 Working with other people's diagrams – reading diagrams

Reading diagrams is an equally useful skill to that of drawing diagrams. Not only does it help you understand what other people are trying to convey, it also helps you be critical of the diagrams you draw yourself. In some cases diagrams are used to make the text look pretty or appealing and do not add to the understanding of the reader (hopefully not the case with the diagrams here!). Even when they are used more effectively there is a need to be critical of what information is being conveye
