How do you know that?

engineering everywhere

  • basis for knowing what we know
  • science – tools to facilitate discover, expanding knowledge, understanding – collaboration, leapfrog


  • NASA – mostly engineering, applied science

need both science (nature) and engineering (man-made) to move forward / deeper. sometimes have to wait for one to catch-up

  • observe planets, stars – telescope to “see” finer details
  • microscopes to “see” germs
  • measurement – time – clocks, speed – radar, weight – balance, scales
