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 their coding skills 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.
The course will be offered in 2 parts: Part 1 will run from September 21st to December 7th, 2021, and Part 2 will run from February 8th to May 3rd, 2022.
