8 Famous Mechanical Engineers You and Your Students Should Know

Almost every invention can be traced back to a mechanical engineer, or someone who drew from mechanical engineering principles. The first wheel and axle, the clock on a classroom wall, the family car: all of these exist because of mechanical engineering.

The Six Branches of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is an essential part of our world: it drives innovation and keeps things running in healthcare, aviation, transportation, and beyond, often by facilitating the systems we don’t always see.
Computer science and art are more closely connected than you might expect. Here's how they work together.

Computer Science and Art: Bridging Technical and Creative Skills

People like to put things into categories, and often, we assume that these categories are mutually exclusive. This is typically the case with describing ourselves as “technical” or “creative” – rarely would we consider that someone might be both, or that there’s a strong connection between these two categories.

But there is a connection.
