2 Technology SystemA 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.
3 Core TechnologiesThe core technologies are the “building blocks” of all technology systems.
5 Mechanical Technology Technology of putting together mechanical parts to produce, control and transmit motion.Examples
6 Structural Technology Technology of putting mechanical parts and materials together to create supports, containers, shelters, connectors and functional shapes.Examples
7 Electrical Technology Technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from electrical energy.Examples
8 Electronic Technology Technology of using small amounts of electricity for controlling; detecting; and information collecting, storing, retrieving, processing and communicating.Examples
9 Examples Fluid Technology Technology of using fluid, either gas (pneumatics) or liquid (hydraulic) to apply force or to transport.Examples
10 Examples Optical Technology Technology of producing light; using light for information collection, storage, retrieval, process and communication; and using light to do work.Examples
11 Examples Thermal Technology Technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from heat energy.Examples
12 Examples Biotechnology Technology of using, adapting, and altering organisms and biological processes for a desired outcome.Examples
13 Technology of producing, altering, and combining materials. Materials TechnologyTechnology of producing, altering, and combining materials.Examples
14 With a PartnerTurn 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.
15 Our FocusFor the Sea Perch Project we will be focusing on three of the nine core technologies and how they integrate to create the Sea Perch.StructuralMechanicalElectrical
