Engineering and Technology
What makes it go? What makes it stop? What makes it go faster? What makes it go slower? What makes it go higher? (You get the idea). These are the questions engineering students will explore, extrapolate, experience and evaluate. Using a range of engineering practices and theories students will examine a variety of mechanisms and processes. They will explore electronics, robotics, drafting and system control. Understand principles in energy transmission and conversion systems and build their own portfolios of curricular competencies in the development of their own personal design Journals and hands on projects. Brainboost students who have thought it, and now want to build it, are welcome.
