Welcome to Technology & Engineering!
This course focuses on the nature and core concepts of technology, engineering, and design. Through engaging activities and hands-on project based activities, students are introduced to the following concepts: elements and principles of design, basic engineering, problem solving, and teaming. Students apply research and development skills and produce physical and virtual models. Activities are structured to integrate physical and social sciences, mathematics, English language arts, and art. The students develop an understanding of engineering principles and the technical design process and emerging technologies relevant to today’s society.
In addition, this course focuses on physics and chemistry. Students will learn about the properties of matter, how materials and atoms interact in a physical change, types of energy, waves, light, forces and motion. We will use observations, laboratory investigations, and problem solving to analyze and understand the science of everyday physics and chemical phenomena.
