Course Description:

Students engage in the study of
technology and it’s

applications to manufacturing, transportation, and
robotic
systems. Topics include
digital circuits
, robotics, programming, control systems, and social/cultural
impa
ct of these technologies. Problem
-
solving activities challenge students to design, program, and interface
alternative energy systems
. Learning activities include
digital circuits
,
robotics, computer
-
aided design,
computer
-
aided manufacturing and design, an
d control of electromechanical devices.

During the course of the school year, s
tudents will apply
reading and
math
skills
to the

study and
diagnoses of
circuits
used within these various fields of study.
Students will be challenged with a variety of case
s
tudies that will require teamwork, creativity, scientific problem solving, and the application of science and
technological

literacy.


Extensive use of the Landstown Student Web Portal

and SchoolNet

will be utilized in completing
classroom assignments and
research. Students will complete hands on projects based on the concepts and
theories reviewed in the coursework.
