Technology Systems: Core Technologies
Technology System A technology system is a group of resources (subsystems) working together to solve problems and extend human capabilities. In your notes, list the: problem a jet ski solves. The subsystems that work together in a jet ski.
Core Technologies The core technologies are the building blocks of all technology systems.
Mechanical Technology Technology of putting together mechanical parts to produce, control and transmit motion.
Structural Technology Technology of putting mechanical parts and materials together to create supports, containers, shelters, connectors and functional shapes.
Electrical Technology Technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from electrical energy.
Electronic Technology Technology of using small amounts of electricity for controlling; detecting; and information collecting, storing, retrieving, processing and communicating.
Fluid Technology Technology of using fluid, either gas (pneumatics) or liquid (hydraulic) to apply force or to transport.
Optical Technology Technology of producing light; using light for information collection, storage, retrieval, process and communication; and using light to do work.
Thermal Technology Technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from heat energy.
Biotechnology Technology of using, adapting, and altering organisms and biological processes for a desired outcome.
Materials Technology Technology of producing, altering, and combining materials.
With a Partner Turn to your table partner and share which core technology you find most interesting and why. With the help of your partner, indicate in your notes one job that might be found under each core technology.
Our Focus For the Sea Perch Project we will be focusing on three of the nine core technologies and how they integrate to create the Sea Perch. Structural Mechanical Electrical
