Popular Mechanics

I was at the bookstore this weekend and picked up the September 2012 issue of Popular Mechanics to look at while I was having coffee. I noticed two articles that might be useful for teachers to talk about in their classrooms. The first was “Big,” about mega-engineering projects such as One World Trade Center and Apple Campus 2. And the second was “Backyard Genius” about various home projects people have created such as a backyard Golden Gate Bridge, a squirrel water cannon, and a compact go-cart. I was thinking that these articles might inspire students to come up with ideas of their own. Do you have any ideas to share?
