How Products Are Made

I came across a great site today that will be a fabulous resource here at a technical school. How Products Are Made contains historical information and manufacturing details for just about every product imaginable. I set out to search for some of the items my teachers may be interested in researching: hair dryers, air conditioners, refrigerators, dentures, engines, etc. Every term had a page with detailed information.

Tech Tips:
  1. This would be a great way to introduce a new skill or tool to the students by engaging them with the history and details of the item itself.

  2. This would be a great starting point for students to use in a research project on an item or unit in the curriculum.
