Transport disasters

We don’t tend to even notice transport infrastructure until it goes wrong!

slide14

What makes a successful transport system?

You need..

Reliability

A path

A vehicle

Skilled operators

Safety

Maintenance

slide15

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN

Let’s look at a flight

What vehicles are involved?

The path?

The skilled people?

Maintenance?

Safety?

Reliability?

slide16

Why do we travel?

To get to jobs or school

To get to healthcare

To trade

For enjoyment, and communication

A LACK OF TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE IS ONE OF THE CAUSES OF POVERTY

slide17

What if there wasn’t all this?

How far do you have to walk to school?

In Mexico, it can take over 5 hours!

Who lives near a tarmac road?

1.2 billion people don’t!

Whose family has a car?

There’s only 1 car for every 2 thousand people in Africa!

slide18

What if there wasn’t all this?

Who has access to water at home?

In rural Africa, many women have to walk more than 5 miles for water!!

The average weight of a water container is 10kg!

slide19

If there wasn’t all this,

what would you do?

LET’S PLAY A GAME!

slide20

If there wasn’t all this,

what would you do?

slide22

WHAT CAN ENGINEERS DO?

How can engineering improve lives?

slide23

Engineers can use their skills to make things better

But they should use appropriatetechnology

Uh oh!

slide25

Bharpak, Nepal

Getting crops to a market is slow and difficult in the mountains

It can take over 6 hours on foot!!

slide26

Bharpak, Nepal

Engineers have designed a GRAVITY ROPEWAY to make the journey easier…

slide28

Bharpak, Nepal

The journey now takes 10 minutes!!

And the villagers can sell more, fresher crops

=

+

+

+

The whole village is prospering!!

slide30

Kibera slum, Nairobi

Kibera is the largest slum in Africa

Half the residents are under 15

Most live on £1 or £2 a day

Yuk!

slide31

Kibera slum, Nairobi

Children would have to cross this to get to school!

slide32

Kibera slum, Nairobi

This is where we need engineers!

slide33

Kibera slum, Nairobi

Good balance!

The final bridge!!

slide34

LET’S PLAY ANOTHER GAME!

You’re going to build a bridge..

slide35

Bridge building

There are several types of bridges

slide36

Truss bridges

Why are they

strong?

slide37

Truss bridges

Triangles are seen in lots of structures:

slide38

Your task..

You are engineers who must build a bridge in Nicaragua

In the rainy season the river is impossible to pass

slide39

Your task…

Build a truss bridge to cross a 20cm gap

The bridge must support # kg

slide41

Is the winning bridge…

The one that held

the most

Or that held the

closest to # kg

?

slide43

If we get transport we get everything else: a community centre, water, employment, post office, telephone..

A community without roads does not have a way out

slide44

What can you do..?

Maybe one day you could be an engineer?

Tell your parents and friends about what you learnt

Ask us questions!!
