Technological Design – TDJ2O is a course that provides students with a better understanding of the engineering design process through projects done with microcomputers and virtual reality. Students will have the opportunity to learn about micro:bit microcomputers, 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, students will take part in an engineering design challenge by creating a virtual world that solves a defined problem.
The course is offered in two parts. Students can take only Part 1 or Part 2 if they wish. However, students must complete both parts to earn a high school credit. Each part can be done independently, so you can start with Part 2 without having completed Part 1.
Students in Grade 8 can enrol in this reach-ahead course with their parents’ approval and their principal’s written support.
