The Art of Making:
Hands-on System Design and Engineering


Credit: 1.0

Grades: 10, 11, 12

Course No. 

 

In the Art of Making course, students will explore user-centric design principles; low-resolution prototyping and experience prototyping; building-block technologies such as sensors, microcontrollers, actuators, displays and communication systems (wireless, Internet); ways to analyze and troubleshoot systems; the logistics of managing projects; how to work collaboratively in teams and how to communicate effectively via presentations, images, videos, posters and other media. Students will gain an introduction to “smart systems”: automated systems that can sense the world and automatically respond in useful ways. We will also focus on the user interface: how to create control and display interfaces that enhance the ability to operate systems effectively and efficiently.

About Us


Technology Education is an integrated, experienced-based instructional program designed to prepare a population that is knowledgeable about technology – its evolution, systems, techniques, uses and social and cultural significance. It results in the application of mathematics and science concepts to develop solutions to practical problems and extend human capabilities.

Technology education is an essential component of a comprehensive and experience-based science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) program. It develops technological literacy among students by demonstrating how mathematics and science is applied to the process of engineering design.
