Principles of Technology

Interest Level : 9-12

 


Principles of Technology is a practical laboratory-based course that teaches traditional physics concepts in the context of their relationship to four energy systems—mechanical, fluid, electrical, and thermal.

A one- or two-year program for high school students, Principles of Technology applies physics principles to technological situations and concentrates more on the use of physics concepts in the workplace rather than on the derivation and manipulation of physics formulas.
