Technology 6 is the first in a series of three Technology courses a student must complete to satisfy their 1 credit requirement at South Middle School. Students study the history of technology, explore the science and mechanics of simple machines, and work on various problem solving activities.
Students will also be involved in a manufacturing unit where they will learn about mass production, interchangeable parts, assembly line, jigs and fixtures. Each student will bring home a wooden charging station/notepad holder that the student helped to create.
This is a quarter course. Classes meet everyday for 10 weeks.
