Students will learn:

  • basic small engine theory;
  • basic design in aerodynamics;
  • production of paper rockets;
  • production of CO2 propelled dragsters.

MECHANICS 9

The aim of this course is to study the evolution of simple to complex machines with an understanding of sources and uses of energy. Students will be provided with a thorough working knowledge of small gasoline engines. They will also develop proficiency in the use of precision measuring tools.

The course will include:

  • source and history of power;
  • fuel and general systems;
  • tools - proper names, use and prices
  • bearings and lubrication, cooling
  • fastenings
  • transmission of power
  • internal combustion engines - 2 and 4 stroke
  • theory of operations; disassembly and assembly
  • inspection and measurement

No prerequisite is required, both male and female students are welcome.

Objectives – student will:

  • demonstrate ability to select and use tools in a correct manner;
  • develop an orderly system of disassembly and reassembly of machines;
  • demonstrate ability to make accurate measurements/compare manufacturer's manuals;
  • demonstrate an understanding of the operation of the internal combustion engine;
  • 60% course time is theory.

TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION 10 – MECHANICS (TEM 10)

The aim of this course is to study the evolution of simple to complex machines, with an understanding of sources and uses of energy. Students will be provided with a thorough knowledge of small gasoline engines. They will develop proficiency in the use of precision measuring tools. Students who have completed Mechanics 9 will work on more advanced projects than students taking the course for the first time.

The course will include:

  • fuel and general systems;
  • tools - proper names, use and prices;
  • bearing and lubrication, cooling;
  • fastenings - hydraulics and - transmission of power;
  • internal combustion engines - 2 and 4 stroke;
  • theory of operation;
  • dissasembly & assembly;
  • inspection and measurement
  • engine service and maintenance

No prerequisite is required, both male and female students are welcome

AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY 11

Prerequisite: Mechanics 10 preferred

This course introduces students to the mechanics of the automobile and service of the various systems. This will be done by projects the student brings in from home and various technical demonstrations throughout the semester. Emphasis is put on student effort, participation and safe work habits. Technical demonstrations will include lifting and supporting, brake systems and service, wheel bearings, cooling systems, ignition and electrical, heads and valves, clutches, wheels and tires.

AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY 12

Prerequisite: AT 11

This course is a continuation of Automotive Technology 11. More emphasis is put on service procedures and rebuilding engines. Projects are to be brought in by students. Effort, participation and safe work habits continue to be most important.​
