Transportation Design


Credit: 0.5

Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12

Course No. 6690

The Transportation Design course is a hands-on investigation of land, air and sea transportation systems. The students will design, construct and test both a high-speed Co2 powered and a low speed mouse-trap powered vehicle. The students will research the advantages of aerodynamics while creating their designs. Students will also work in a group setting to design and construct a full size corrugated cardboard boat that each team members may sit in and paddle across the senior high swimming pool. As in industry, the research and design process of sketching, drawing, prototyping and problem-solving will be followed.
