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