Length of Course and What you will be learning
For half a quarter, approximately twenty-two class periods you will be building and racing a CO2 powered Race Car! You will be learning Engineering techniques that will apply to future classes and possibly to a future career.
Since the course is only 22 days in length and the race and final are on the last two days, when grades start appearing the course is almost over.
Your grade will consist of the following Components:
1. Safety Guides. 100 Points.
2. Safety Tests. 100 Points.
3. Your CO2 Race Car- 100 points. Points will be given for Aerodynamics, Mass, and over all Shape.
A foundation of actual hands-on and learning by application have prepared you to move to more advanced 21st Century courses held here at Dover-Eyota High School. I would be glad to discuss the variety of learning opportunities with you and your parents the Industrial Technology and Design department has for you to consider.
If you or your parents need to talk to me outside of class time, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (507) 545-2631 ext 216.
