Technical Concepts II

(Fulfills 5th or 6th math credit for class of 2007)
Open to 10-12
1 Trimester Period
1 Credit
Prerequisite: Technical Concepts I Recommended

The focus on this class will be on applied physics. Students will expand on the information and learning presented in Technical Concepts I using the same methods of learning. The areas of focus (construction, transportation, communications, energy and power) will remain the same as will the use of projects and experiments to prove theories and to understand the world of industry and technology. Learning will also include problem solving, the study of materials, computer applications, lasers, fiber optics, robotics and more. The course is designed to learn through experimentation and application of the information presented in a group or individual learning structure.
