|MMS Technology Education
WELCOME- to Mr. Burrington's web page:
Technology Education is hands-on educational experience. It is an exploration of construction, manufacturing, communications, transportation, biotechnology, and power and energy. You will discover, create, solve problems, and construct solutions by using a variety of tools, machines, computer systems, and materials.
Here are some of the lessons and activities we will be doing:
We will learn on basic woodworking skills, using hammers, miterboxes & saws in making a name plate, jump-a-peg game and lollipop tree. We will combine those skills and construct a coin bank of your design.
We will use design and layout tools and recycle a sauce/mason jar in constructing a candy dispenser. Build and test bridges with balsa timbers. Lastly we will explore different materials such as plastics and form key chains using some various techniques.
We will learn about basic electrical wiring as you plan and construct a table lamp. Next, we will use a solder iron and build a working circuit. Last, we will design blades for a wind generator and test them to make a light bulb illuminate.
You will be able to express your preference for Related Arts class, and in Technology Education you get choose the projects. As you learn about using a design brief and specifications you can apply that knowledge to clocks, CO2 cars, Luminaries and other outside projects to name a few. You will get a chance to learn some pre-engineering using AutoCAD program and the laser engraver or 3D printer.
