8th grade - Technology Systems

  • 18 weeks (One Semester)

By investigating systems through their function, design, and development, students will understand what systems are, why they are developed and how ‘systems thinking’ can be used to describe them. Students engage in activities and experiences where they evaluate the impacts of technology through the lenses of culture, society, economics and the environment.
