1 What are CORE TECHNOLOGIES?

2 Core Technologies are the building blocks of technology systems. The major Core Technologies are: Mechanical Structural Materials Electrical Electronic Thermal Fluid Optical Biotechnology

3 We use these technologies to help us solve problems and extend human capabilities. Information from this presentation is from The Donald Maley Monograph Series Volume 1 Maryland Technology Education Graduation Outcomes 1994 Published by ITEA, Produced by TEAM

4 Mechanical Technology the technology of putting together mechanical parts to produce, control and transmit motion Example: - gear systems in a car transmission, brakes on a bicycle, agitator in a washing machine, latch set on a door

5 Structural Technology the technology of putting parts and materials together to create supports, containers, shelters, connectors and functional shapes. Example: legs on a chair or table, city water tower, swimming pool, buildings roadways, bridges, storm sewer, airplane wing, satellite antenna

6 Materials Technology the technology of producing, altering and combining materials Example- producing paper from wood, producing aluminum form ore, drilling holes in wood, annealing to soften metal, casting ceramic, welding metal, and laminating wood

7 Electrical Systems the technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from electrical energy Example: power plant generator, flashlight battery, light switch, electric motor in a can opener, door bell, electric heater, blow dryer

8 the technology of using small amounts of electricity for controlling; detecting; and information collecting, storing, retrieving, processing and communicating Example: Thermostat for controlling temperature, a metal detector, video tape recorder, computer, pocket calculator, telephone, radio, television Electronic Systems

9 Thermal Technology the technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from heat energy Example- furnace, hot water heater, toaster, insulation, heat exchanger (radiator, condenser) refrigerator, jet engine, hot air balloon

10 Optical Technology the technology of producing light; controlling light; using light for information collection, processing, storage, retrieval and communication; and using light to do work. Example- light bulb, LED (Light Emitting Diode) lenses to magnify and reduce, laser speed detector, laser compact disk, fiber optic telephone communication, laser cutting tools, laser surgery instruments

11 Bio Technology the technology of using, adapting and altering organisms and biological processes for a desired outcome Example- stain eating enzymes in detergent, bacteria leaching of metals from ore,, altering plant genes to produce better crops

12 Fluid Technology The technology of using hydraulics or pneumatics to apply force or transmit power. Example- a nail gun, bike pump, floor jack, door closer, pneumatic press
