Based at Cambridge University, the Engineering Design Challenges were created to give students the opportunity to experience working as part of a team on a problem in a similar manner to commercial design and project management. As part of their outreach to budding engineers, they have created these various projects to be used by teachers and students alike. Currently, there are three projects on the site: "Bridge Design Spring-Powered Vehicles", "Low Noise Aircraft Undercarriage", and "Retractable Stadia Roofing". Each of these projects includes an introduction, a kit list, and a set of outside resources. There is also a helpful "General" resources section, which provides information on "Introduction to Design", "Project Management", "Structural Design", and more. Taken as a whole, these projects offer a creative and well-designed way for engineering students to think about such endeavors.
