Gateway to Technology

Mr. Gassner -
This hands-on class integrates math, science and technology to show how engineering is used to solve everyday problems. Students develop skills that will prepare them for a rigorous high school curriculum.  We will study the first three units which are Design and Modeling , Automation and Robotics, and Energy and Environment.

The students created a CO2 car.  (Investigate and describe applications of Newton's law of intertia, law of force and acceleration, and law of action reaction such as in vehicle restraints, sports activities, amusement park rides, and ROCKET LAUNCHES.)
