Course Description

#0515 Principles of Physics Technology

Grades 9 -12 / Full Year Lab Course—2.0 HS credits (Student may elect to receive either a science or practical arts credit)
Dual Credit with College of DuPage
(Electronics 1110 - 2 Semester Hours)

This course focuses on the teaching of traditional physics concepts in the context of their relationship to industry and the four energy systems: mechanical, fluid, electrical and thermal. This course allows the student to apply physics concepts and principles to workplace situations with hands–on labs.  This course also teaches the mathematical and scientific principles behind the technology we use everyday.  This course will be beneficial for the student who is interested in the STEM applications of technology and physics but does not choose to enroll in a traditional physics course.
