Research & Design 

 

This full-day interdisciplinary program teaches students the principles of research, design, prototyping, and analysis through the topics of projectile motion, structural support systems, power generation, and acoustic systems. Students will be taught the concepts from grade 11 Physics, grade 11 Math, and grade 11 Tech Design, and grade 11 Computer Science and apply them in a variety of individual and team projects that tackle both real-world and simulated problems.

Students interested in fields such as architecture, biomechanics, engineering, computer programming, aerospace, aviation, acoustics, robotics, structure, or have a general interest in how and why things work are encouraged to consider applying for this program.

 

Course Codes: SPH3U, MCR3U, TDJ3M, ICS3U

 

The course includes several full-class field trips, including one overnight trip. The costs for all the field trips, as well as a class t-shirt and some supplemental building materials is collected in a single amount of $600 from each student. This can be paid all at once or over three payments that begin shortly before the semester and end near the middle.
