How Everyday Things are Made

Monday, January 17th, 2005 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

“AIM has developed an introductory website for kids and adults showing how various items are made. It covers over 40 different products and manufacturing processes, and includes almost 4 hours of manufacturing video. It is targeted towards non-engineers and engineers alike. Think of it as your own private online factory tour, or a virtual factory tour, if you wish.”

To use this site click the title “How Everyday Things Are Made” and it will open up in a new window. Now you can pick and chose which videos and tours you want to watch. You can see everything from bottling to how certain items are made.

When the window first opens there will be an introduction and below the viewing screen a list of resources you can check out. Online Tours, Books, Process Info, FAQ’s, and About us. On the side you’ll notice there are tabs that read Products 1, 2 and 3. Choose a tab to look at different products.

I love the Jelly Bean video. It was very interesting to see how they made them, not to mention some of the pictures are very neat.

You can also check out how they do casting, make crayons, or even cars and airplanes. All of this is really neat. I’ll be honest I watched it all beginning to end and was much enriched by everything I learned.
