Week 6

MSENGR-TS-3:  The students will develop an understanding of how humans interact with systems.

  •  Operate technological systems
  • Maintain technological systems
  • Constructing technological systems
  • Design technological systems


  1. Read an owner’s manual for a given system and outline the user-performed maintenance tasks
  2. Sketch a given system, label its parts, write technical directions used to operate device, and list outcomes of using device
  3. Design, construct, and test a simple system (i.e. electrical circuit, model rocket, bridge structure)

Week 5

MSENGR-TS-4:  The students will develop an understanding of how systems evolve from one stage to another.

  • Illustrate the evolution of a variety of technological systems
  • Analyze the reason for the evolution of technological systems
  • Investigate the cause of system failures
TASK: Examine the historical development of a technological artifact from its beginning to its current state (example, audio recording equipment, camera, telephone, T.V and so on)
  • Create a timeline (digital or print).
  • DAY 1: Decide on the artifact and research.
  • Day 2:  Research and begin creating a timeline of your artifact
  • Day 3 and 4: Continue working on your timeline
