Industrial Technology Teacher Resources
Find Industrial Technology educational ideas and activities
High schoolers get involved in a unique collaboration that enhances their knowledge of architecture and design. Develop organizer resources with others. They are engulfed into a world of architects and museum specialists to facilitate the appreciation of the demands and potential of technology.
Young scholars study how industrial technology helps clean up and prevent air pollution. They role play as engineers to examine methods of engineering pollutant recovery methods such as scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, cyclones, and baghouses. They write environmental action campaign letters after determining the existence of global problems.
How does Oliver Twist, the novel written by Charles Dickens, compare with its screenplay adaptation? Although the activity doesn't require learners to have read the novel, the similarities and differences of the highlighted passages would be best understood by those who have. After identifying and discussing the differences, have learners choose their favorite book. Has this book been made into a movie? What aspects should remain true to the story's plot line?
Setting goals, career exploration, and self-awareness are three major components found on the path to college. A wide variety of wonderful teaching tools are provided to help you facilitate an understanding of how simple it can be to plan out an academic career. Planning cards, charts, activity procedures, and web links makes this a handy resource, focused on getting your class ready for college.
This collection consists of a slide on each of the following unrelated, but fascinating elements: einsteinium, curium, radium, radon, nobelium, seaborgium, silicon, magnesium, and postassium. You will not find detailed information on the chemical properties of these elements, but rather interesting facts about the history or use of each. If you are looking for a presentation to simply stimulate learners' interest in chemistry, you might find this useful.
Develop an environmental case study! Elementary learners discover how a case study is used as an analysis tool. The goal of this activity is to show pupils how techniques of persuasion (including background, supporting evidence, storytelling, and call to action) are used to develop an argument for or against a topic. The example they look at is the developing acid rain problem in New York's Adirondack Mountains.
Although preparation-intensive, this would be an unforgettable experience in materials engineering. Stimulate learners' curiosity with a slide show and then introduce them to the components of concrete. Small groups mix and pour concrete into frames. The next day, the concrete is tested for how much weight it will withstand. While the resource says it is adaptable to all ages, you may want to use it only with older learners due to the quantity of materials involved.
Eighth graders complete an Interdisciplinary Unit on the Muckrakers and the Progressive Movement. Students describe life in America and how Progressive Reformers changed it. identify specific problems and propose solutions. Students create and publish a newspaper from a historical perspective. Students analyze and interpret data to create a Cartesian graph, as well as a pie graph. Also, Students define and apply equations to solve problems in the mechanics of industry.
Ninth graders explore career options in the manufacturing industry. This lesson's strength lies in its connections between the world of school and the world of work. Students explore these career options through an interactive video-conference with an engineering professor or professional who answers student-generated questions.
