Engineering I #3835

Foundations of Technology

Grades: 9-12 Credit: 1

Foundations of Technology prepare students to understand and apply technological concepts and processes that are the cornerstone tor the high school technology program. Group and individual activities engage students in crating ideas, developing innovations, and engineering practical solutions. Technology content, resources, and laboratory/class-room activities apply student applications to science, mathematics and other school subjects in authentic situations. 

Engineering II #3836

Technological Issues

Grade: 10-12 Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Engineering I, Algebra I

This course contributes to the development of each high school student's capability to make responsible judgments about technology's development, control and use. Critiquing appropriate technology and sustainable development are important. The structure of the course brings discussions of technological values so that students can reflect and develop their own ethical standards. Students are actively involved in the organized and integrated application of technological resources, engineering concepts, and scientific procedures. Students address the complexities of technology and issues that stem from designing, developing, using and assessing technological systems. In developing a functional understanding of technology, students comprehend how human conditions, current affairs, and personal preferences drive technological design and problem solving. 

Engineering III #3837

Advanced Technological Issues

Grade. 10-12 Credit: 1

Prerequisite: Engineering II, Algebra I. Geometry

In this course students study the following tour components of the Design World:

1. Agriculture and Bio-related Technologies: this unit explores how agricultural technologies provide increased crop yields and allow adaptation to changing and harsh environments, enabling the growth or plants and animals for various uses. It also offers an analysis of the various uses of biotechnology and the ethical considerations of their uses.

2. Entertainment and Recreation: this unit provides a study of technological entertainment and recreation systems, with an examination of the differences between these technologies, of how their use enhances human leisure-time performance, and of the social, cultural, and environmental implication of their usage.

3. Information Technologies: this unit examines how technology facilitates the gathering, manipulation, storage and transmission of data, and how this data can be used to create useful products. It also provides students With opportunities for developing communication systems that can solve technological problems Medical Technologies: this unit provides an analysis of how medical technologies are used to increase the quality and length of human life, and how increased use of technology carries potential consequences, which require public debate, Student will also examine tools and devices used to repair and replace organs, prevent disease and rehabilitate the human body. 

Science Engineering III #3838

Advanced Design Applications

Prerequisite: Engineering II, Algebra I, Geometry

Grades 11-12 Credit 1

This course consists of the following four units:

1 Manufacturing Technologies: this unit examines the advances that maintain manufacturing efficiency, how human consumption affects manufacturing and how process and changing raw materials can produce more desirable products.

2 Construction Technologies: this unit examines a number of the factors influencing the design and construction of permanent and semi-permanent structures, the practices related to construction maintenance, alteration, and renovation and the functions of the primary systems installed in those structures.

3. Energy and Power Technologies: this unit explores the relationship between energy and power technologies and all other technologies, and how they impact cultures, societies, and the environment.

4. Transportation Technologies: this unit examines the complex networks of interconnect subsystems that each transportation system comprises and the roles of these components in the overall functional process of the system.
