    Technology Education Teachers

    Applied Technology I
    Grades:  9 - 12     Prerequisite:  none     Credit:  1
    Students acquire a foundation in technological material, energy, and information and apply processes associated with the technological thinker. Challenged by laboratory activities, students create new ideas and innovations, build systems, and analyze technological products to learn further how and why technology works.They work in groups to build and control systems using engineering design in the development of a technology.Technologies explored include Biotechnology, Communications, Construction, Manufacturing, Power and Energy, and Transportation. 
    Aerospace Science
    Grades:  10 - 12     Prerequisite:  none     Credit:  1
    Aerospace Science is a Northern Virginia Regional course designed to introduce students to the technologies of aeronautics and space sciences.The course is a study of the interrelationship between aeronautics and space science. Students use a hands-on approach to study concepts including aerodynamic principles, aircraft and spacecraft technologies, meteorology and space environments, commercial applications, administration, and historical perspectives. Field experiences expose students to career paths in the aerospace industry and governmental agencies.
    Applied Technology II
    Grades:  10 - 12     Prerequisite:  Applied Technology I     Credit:  1
    Students work with a variety of computers, materials, and systems to improve their skills and knowledge. Groups work together, applying mathematics, science, and communication concepts on a project that combines systems such as production, energy, communication, transportation, biotechnology, and other technologies.Thematic activities engage students in community problems where they transfer the technological method to address recycling, space exploration, and housing.
    Computer Aided Drafting & Design I
    Grades:  10 - 12     Prerequisite:  none     Credit:  1
    Computer Aided Drafting & Design provides the student with the basic principles and theories underlying graphic representations, which are common to all areas of industrial work. Learning units and required drawings emphasize the basic skills in computer assisted drawing (CADD) and related areas. Occupational information is also presented.
    Applied Technology III
    Grades:  11 - 12     Prerequisite:  Applied Technology II     Credit:  1
    Technology Assessment is offered as a capstone course for students in high school. Students use their knowledge and abilities in technology, mathematics, science, and other disciplines to analyze the impacts of technological devices and systems on the world. Students use information they acquire through activities and research to predict the future.They use computers and assessment activities to analyze products and systems to determine their possible impact.They design and present their newly created products or systems.
    Computer Aided Drafting & Design II
    Grades:  11 - 12     Prerequisite:  CADD I     Credit:  1
    This course is designed to give the college-bound student an opportunity to explore specific fields related to Computer Aided Drafting & Design. These areas are architectural, electrical, sheet metal, structural, topographical, and mechanical. The student then chooses areas of interest and pursues independent, in depth studies. 
    Introduction to Cybersecurity  Grade(s): 9-11 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: None
    Cybersecurity affects every individual, organization, and nation. This course focuses on the evolving and all-pervasive technological environment with an emphasis on securing personal, organizational, and national information. Students will be introduced to the principles of cybersecurity, explore emerging technologies, examine threats and protective measures, and investigate the diverse high-skill, high-wage, and high-demand career opportunities in the field of cybersecurity. This course counts as an elective credit.
    Technology of Robotic Design  Grade(s): 9-12 Credit: 1 Prerequisite: None
    Students engage in the study of computers and microprocessors and their applications to manufacturing, transportation, and communication systems. Topics include computer equipment and operating systems, robotics, programming, control systems, and social/cultural impact of these technologies. Problem-solving activities challenge students to design, program, and interface devices with computer systems. Learning activities include robotics, computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing and design, and control of electromechanical devices. This course is piloted in select schools. Lab Fee: 10.00
