Engineering Systems

This course will introduce the child to a systems approach to engineering solutions in both mechanics and electronics. It will present a way to view solutions found in both the natural and engineered world as systems that respond to different inputs and provide desired outputs that are determined by a purposufully designed process stage.

    Description

    This course will introduce the child to a systems approach to engineering solutions in both mechanics and electronics. It will present a way to view solutions found in both the natural and engineered world as systems that respond to different inputs and provide desired outputs that are determined by a purposefully designed process stage.

    Requirements

    The child will be provided with the components, instructions and guidance to construct / complete and take home the following:

    • Electronic dark-activated LED circuit
    • Downfall mechanical toy
    • Support materials including handouts

    Assessment & Grading

    • Formative assessment by means of ongoing verbal feedback during the practical components of the course.
    • Self-assessment of the learning process and the final outcome
