Technological Design - TDJ2O, is a course that provides students with a better understanding of the engineering design process through projects done with microcomputer and virtual reality. Students will have the chance to learn about micro:bit microcomputer, they will use multiple sensors and develop coding to solve common problems. They will also explore, create and program a virtual world using CoSpaces. At the end of the course, the students will take part in an engineering design challenge by creating a virtual world that solves a defined problem.
Although this course has no prerequisites, it is helpful to have taken Exploring Technological Design - TDJ1O prior to enrolling in this course. Students in grade 8 may enroll in this reach-ahead course with approval from their parents and written support from their current principal. Students can either take part in the full-course or take Part 1 of the course and come back next summer to complete Part 2. Those who successfully complete the full course will gain a full credit toward their secondary school diploma and those who successfully complete Part 1 of the course will gain half a credit toward their secondary school diploma.
