  1. Technology What is it and how does it affective your life?

  2. Technology is the products and processes designed to serve our needs

  3. The wordsscience and technology can and often are used interchangeably. But the goal of science is the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake while the goal of technology is to create products that solve problems and improve human life. Simply put, technology is the practical application of science.

  4. Science Science is knowing The search for and theorizing about cause Making virtually value-free statements Analysis, generalization and creation of theories Corresponding Scientific Processes Technology is a part of science but how is it different? • Technology • Technology is doing • The search for and theorizing about new processes. • Activities always value-laden • Analysis and synthesis of design • Key Technological Processes • Science

  5. Science Technology

  6. How has technology changed over the years?

  7. How has technology changed?

  8. What is engineering and how does it relate to technology? • Engineering is the process of creating technology. • Professional engineers, scientists, inventors, business owners, artists and even students have engineered new technologies. • How you ask???? • Anyone can follow the engineering design process to solve a problem or address a need.

  9. What is the engineering design process?

  10. Let’s look at each step of the Engineering Design process. • Step 1: ASK • Identify the problem or need. • Research the need or problem. • Examine the current state of the issue. • An example: Air pollution is a big problem. How can we cut down on this? Design an automobile that uses a non polluting energy source.

  11. Step 2: Imagine Develop possible solutions. Brainstorm possible solutions. ( A group of people share ideas quickly to promote additional ideas). Sometimes one product may spark an idea for another product. Use math and science. Select the best possible solution. Determine which solution best meets the original needs.

  12. Step 3 Design • Create the blue prints for your design. • Find the materials and items you’ll need

  13. Step 4 Create • Make a prototype. • The prototype may be a physical model or a computer model. • This allows engineers to see if their design works,

  14. Step 5 Test • Test and evaluate the solution. • Do the prototype do the job it was designed to do? Engineers make sure that the cost of designing and producing the new product is worth its benefit. This is called cost benefit analysis. • Is it safe, reliable and durable?

  15. Step 6 Improve • Modify and retest the solution if necessary. • If it did not work well engineers would modify their prototype or try a new solution.

  16. Step 7: Communicate • Communicate your results to other engineers and customers of the product.

  17. The Iron Man Movies and the Engineering Design Process Billionaire genius and weapons designerTony Stark is captured by terrorists, and they want him to build a super-weapon. Instead he builds an armored exoskeleton to fight them.  Notes SPI 0807.T.E.1(Prototype Testing) SPI 0807.T/E.2(Eng. Des. Process) • Step 1: Identify a need • Why did Tony Stark build the "Iron Man" suit? • Step 2: Develop Possible Solutions • What are some other options he could have built instead? • Step 2a: Pick the best design • Do you think the "Iron Man" suit was the best design option? • Step 3: Make a prototype • Where and how did Tony build his prototype(s) • Step 4: Test the prototype • Where and how did Tony test his prototype(s) • Step 5: Modify and re-test the prototype • How did Tony modify his prototype to make it work better?

  18. Notes SPI 0807.T.E.1(Prototype Testing) SPI 0807.T/E.2(Eng. Des. Process) 3rd Prototype Mark 3 Version 1st Prototype Mark 1 Version 2nd Prototype Mark 2 Version Prototypes are often called mark versions

  19. Notes SPI 0807.T.E.1(Prototype Testing) SPI 0807.T/E.2(Eng. Des. Process) • Address these questions • about this prototype • Needs being addressed? • What are some prototype design considerations? • What is the mark version? • How would you test and • re-test this prototype? • What might be some unintended consequences? • Adaptive or assistive Bioengineering? (Explain)

  20. Notes SPI 0807.T.E.1(Prototype Testing) SPI 0807.T/E.2(Eng. Des. Process) Watch video clips Tony Stark tests his mark 2 prototype Link: Mark 2-Hover Test Tony again tests his mark 2 prototype Link: Mark 2-Full Flight Test Tony tests his mark 7 prototype Link: Improved Suit-Up Procedure Note: stop or mute video at the 36 second point
