Science with Technology Focused Units

The Science with Technology focused units were each planned to concentrate on a particular aspect of a topic. The units were created as part of a joint initiative of the Association for Science Education and the Design and Technology Association.

The series of focused units was intended to develop students' understanding of key scientific concepts and help to re-work them into 'knowledge for practical action'. Thus these units were designed to help students overcome the problems they may have in transferring their understanding of a concept from one subject to another, in this case, from science to technology.

Titles of the focused units
* Control in Action: Designing a Fermenter
* Understanding Sensors
* Understanding the Science of Food (not yet in the eLibrary)
* Human Factors in Design (not yet in the eLibrary)
* Evaluating Environmental Impact (not yet in the eLibrary)
* Cars and the Environment
* Energy Transfers: from Source to Load
