Here is a cool website which outlines, "How everyday things are made." They have things on here like Airplanes, Cars, Candy, Glass Bottles & more. Here is a little intro from the website:
If you've ever wondered how things are made - products like candy, cars, airplanes, or bottles - or if you've been interested in manufacturing processes, like forging, casting, or injection molding, then you've come to the right place.

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.

We are able to cover only a small number of products and processes, but we believe it will give you a good introduction to the world of manufacturing.
