    Presentation 2.1.1

  • The Big Idea

    People are better able to understand the world around them when they explore how people of all times and places

    have used their unique skills to innovate, improvise, and invent.

  • Technological Systems

    Science, technology, engineering and mathematics principles combine to form small systems

    Small systems are combined to form larger systems

    Science, technology, engineering and mathematics are interrelated to the extent where progress in one area, promotes advancement in all other areas

  • Types of Impacts From the Use of Technology

    Ethical considerations are important in the development, selection and use of technology

    Impacts may be positive or negative Social Economic Cultural Political Environmental

  • Case Study

    A Direct Current power line has been proposed to cross your state to deliver needed electricity to a large metropolitan area. The right of way will be 150 ft wide The towers will be 75 ft tall

    As you review the next few slides, discuss the positive and negative impacts of this project.

    Record these impacts in your Engineering Design Journal
