TECHNOLOGY 9 This hands-on course covers a variety of topics in the areas of Technology. These may include research and design in electronics, robotics, lasers, construction engineering, aerospace and aeronautics. Through projects, labs and group study, students develop design and problem solving skills. Students at SSS will build a solid fuel rocket using rocket simulation software, allowing students to test the performance of different rocket shapes and sizes. A wireless altimeter will be used to determine the height of each student’s rocket. Other projects include building a trebuchet, and working with Arduino microcontrollers. *Note for students at PSS: in Technology 9 & 10 you will design and build either a tethered or remotely controlled “Battlebot” and will compete with other students in a demolition-style competition in a Battlebot Arena.
