What are CORE TECHNOLOGIES? : What are CORE TECHNOLOGIES? Core Technologies are the building blocks of technology systems. The major Core Technologies are: : Core Technologies are the building blocks of technology systems. The major Core Technologies are: Mechanical Structural Materials Electrical Electronic Thermal Fluid Optical Biotechnology PowerPoint Presentation: We use these technologies to help us solve problems and extend human capabilities. Information from this presentation is from The Donald Maley Monograph Series — Volume 1 Maryland Technology Education Graduation Outcomes 1994 Published by ITEA, Produced by TEAM Mechanical Technology : Mechanical Technology the technology of putting together mechanical parts to produce, control and transmit motion Example : - gear systems in a car transmission, brakes on a bicycle, agitator in a washing machine, latch set on a door Structural Technology : Structural Technology the technology of putting parts and materials together to create supports, containers, shelters, connectors and functional shapes. Example : legs on a chair or table, city water tower, swimming pool, buildings roadways, bridges, storm sewer, airplane wing, satellite antenna Materials Technology :  Materials Technology the technology of producing, altering and combining materials Example - producing paper from wood, producing aluminum form ore, drilling holes in wood, annealing to soften metal, casting ceramic, welding metal, and laminating wood Electrical Systems : Electrical Systems the technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from electrical energy Example: power plant generator, flashlight battery, light switch, electric motor in a can opener, door bell, electric heater, blow dryer Electronic Systems : the technology of using small amounts of electricity for controlling; detecting; and information collecting, storing, retrieving, processing and communicating Example: Thermostat for controlling temperature, a metal detector, video tape recorder, computer, pocket calculator, telephone, radio, television Electronic Systems Thermal Technology :  Thermal Technology the technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from heat energy Example - furnace, hot water heater, toaster, insulation, heat exchanger (radiator, condenser) refrigerator, jet engine, hot air balloon Optical Technology : Optical Technology the technology of producing light; controlling light; using light for information collection, processing, storage, retrieval and communication; and using light to do work. Example - light bulb, LED (Light Emitting Diode) lenses to magnify and reduce, laser speed detector, laser compact disk, fiber optic telephone communication, laser cutting tools, laser surgery instruments Bio Technology : Bio Technology the technology of using, adapting and altering organisms and biological processes for a desired outcome Example- stain eating enzymes in detergent, bacteria leaching of metals from ore,, altering plant genes to produce better crops Fluid Technology: Fluid Technology The technology of using hydraulics or pneumatics to apply force or transmit power. Example- a nail gun, bike pump, floor jack, door closer, pneumatic press
