Using relevant hands-on activities, students will develop an understanding and appreciation of how transportation, construction, and communication systems affect our lives, society, and the world. Students will construct working models that demonstrate the principles of transportation, the principles of construction, and principles of communication. Students will discuss the impacts and appropriate use of technology. In addition, students will explore alternative power and energy systems, biotechnology, and problem solving methods. They will be encouraged to problem solve and be creative in their design and thought process.
