Students will be asked to design/model a custom car accessory (OPTION to test the aerodynamics in a classroom made windtunnel). Students are welcome to use whichever 3D modeling software that is available. Students will also learn how to create multi part assemblies. Students can then explore their design work into technical drawing formats, like exploded view parts, drawings, and orthographic projection technical drawings for manufacturing. Skills that will develop during this small unit are as follows: Procedure thinking; Design problem solving; Introduction to Transportation Technology terminology; Additional careers and post secondary pathways involving the transportation sector, Automotive engineering sector.
