Technology Education Program Introduction Powerpoint

  1. 1. Technology Education J. M. Morehead High School Max Dooley Room 64
  2. 2. Technology Education <ul><li>Technology Education helps students develop an appreciation and fundamental understanding of technology through the study and application of materials, tools, processes, inventions, structures and artifacts of the past and present. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology may be defined as “How people modify their natural world to suit their purposes” (from Technology for All Americans). </li></ul>
  3. 3. Technology Education <ul><li>This series of courses allows students to apply knowledge, tools, skills, and insights to the solving of problems found in the following areas while at Morehead High School: </li></ul><ul><li>Fundamentals of Technology 8110 </li></ul><ul><li>Communication Systems 8125 </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturing Systems 8115 </li></ul><ul><li>Technology Advanced Studies 8005 </li></ul>
  4. 4. Fundamentals of Technology <ul><li>This course provides prerequisite hands-on experiences in principles and processes essential for the study of the technology systems courses and develops a foundation for students interested in any technical field of study. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples of hands-on experiences include: </li></ul><ul><li>Shipping container design activities </li></ul><ul><li>Maglev cars </li></ul><ul><li>Cardboard chairs </li></ul><ul><li>Fuel Cells </li></ul><ul><li>Assembly of electronic kits </li></ul>
  5. 5. Fundamentals of Technology The Potato Chip Challenge The students design and construct their container and mail our precious cargo.
  6. 6. Fundamentals of Technology The Potato Chip Challenge The precious cargo revealed.
  7. 7. Fundamentals of Technology The Potato Chip Challenge The chips do not all survive the trip trough the U.S. Postal Service.
  8. 8. Fundamentals of Technology Maglev cars A very simple Maglev Design.
  9. 9. Fundamentals of Technology Maglev cars Maglev is an abbreviation of Magnetic Levitation, so the cars actually float.
  10. 10. Fundamentals of Technology Maglev cars Some of the cars are really fast both forwards and in reverse.
  11. 11. Fundamentals of Technology Cardboard chairs First, they must design their chair on paper.
  12. 12. Fundamentals of Technology Cardboard chairs Then the students must build the chair out of cardboard and masking tape.
  13. 13. Fundamentals of Technology Cardboard chairs
  14. 14. Fundamentals of Technology Cardboard chairs
  15. 15. Fundamentals of Technology Cardboard chairs
  16. 16. Fundamentals of Technology Cardboard chairs They don’t always work! I think he might have been laying down on the job, maybe!!!
  17. 17. Fundamentals of Technology Fuel Cells A Hydrogen powered Fuel Cell
  18. 18. Fundamentals of Technology Fuel Cells The basic kit Fuel Cell kit.
  19. 19. Fundamentals of Technology Fuel Cells Electricity created by the Fuel Cell powers the motor.
  20. 20. Fundamentals of Technology Fuel Cells These Hydrogen powered motors can then power other devices.
  21. 21. Fundamentals of Technology Circuit Boards The basic kit gives instructions and all the needed components.
  22. 22. Fundamentals of Technology Circuit Boards They must identify every part correctly, or the finished product will not function properly.
  23. 23. Fundamentals of Technology Circuit Boards The students must also ensure that every solder joint is done correctly.
  24. 24. Fundamentals of Technology Circuit Boards A finished product, this is an electronic cricket.
  25. 25. Manufacturing Systems <ul><li>This course introduces students to principles of past and present manufacturing systems. Emphasis is placed on computer modeling, flexible manufacturing systems and computer-aided manufacturing concepts. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples of hands-on experiences include: </li></ul><ul><li>School based projects </li></ul><ul><li>Personal projects </li></ul><ul><li>Design, build, and test a Catapult, Trebuchet or Ballista. </li></ul><ul><li>Participate in a group project that will require the class to conceptualize, establish, maintain and dissolve a manufacturing based enterprise from start to finish. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Manufacturing Systems Students will learn how to operate a Belt Sander
  27. 27. Manufacturing Systems Students will learn how to operate a Compound Miter Saw
  28. 28. Manufacturing Systems Students will learn how to operate a Band Saw.
  29. 29. Manufacturing Systems Students will learn how to operate various other pieces of machinery and power tools.
  30. 30. Manufacturing Systems For a class project, this class choose coasters as their product. Here they are ripping the wood to width.
  31. 31. Manufacturing Systems This is a Forstner bit and fixture that were used to achieve the recessed area of the coaster.
  32. 32. Manufacturing Systems These are the coaster prior to staining and filling the inset design.
  33. 33. Manufacturing Systems The finished product was very impressive and sold very well.
  34. 34. Communication Systems <ul><li>This course introduces students to classical and contemporary visual, audio and electronic communication using state-of-the-art technology. Emphasis is placed on analyzing, designing, testing and evaluating communication systems such as: computer operating systems, the Internet, electronic, optical and digital communication systems . </li></ul><ul><li>Examples of hands-on experiences include: </li></ul><ul><li>Build / use a Pinhole camera. </li></ul><ul><li>Develop film </li></ul><ul><li>Design PowerPoint presentations </li></ul><ul><li>Tear down and build computers </li></ul><ul><li>Create working floor plans of a house </li></ul>
  35. 35. Communication Systems Pinhole Photography Example Pinhole picture. This is actually a developed negative.
  36. 36. Communication Systems Pinhole Photography Example Pinhole picture. This is actually a developed negative.
  37. 37. Communication Systems Pinhole Photography Example Pinhole picture. This is actually a developed positive.
  38. 38. Communication Systems Floor Plans The idea is to end up with a set of plans that could be used to build a house.
  39. 39. Communication Systems Floor Plans This elevational view shows what the house will look like.
  40. 40. Communication Systems Computer Assembly They start by disassembling the computers to a bare case.
  41. 41. Communication Systems Computer Assembly First component to be installed is the Motherboard.
  42. 42. Communication Systems Computer Assembly Then the install the various devices like the hard drive, power supply, cd/dvd ROMs …
  43. 43. Communication Systems Computer Assembly Shortly, it starts to look like a real computer.
  44. 44. Communication Systems Computer Assembly The final test is to set up the computer and see if it works.
  45. 45. Technology Advanced Studies <ul><li>In this course students select and pursue a topic of interest using knowledge and skills gained from previous technical and academic courses. Emphasis is placed on having the students select, direct, and evaluate their own study while using complex technological tools. This study allows the integration of science, mathematics, or language arts, the fine arts, and social studies with the application of technology. This course is for students who have completed three technical credits in Technology Education. </li></ul><ul><li>Activities for this course may include: </li></ul><ul><li>school-based enterprise </li></ul><ul><li>job shadowing </li></ul><ul><li>service-learning projects </li></ul><ul><li>apprenticeship </li></ul><ul><li>cooperative education </li></ul><ul><li>internship. </li></ul>
