Engineering Related Technology: A Laboratory and Curriculum Design for the Newly Emerging Technology of Pollution-Corrosion Measurement and Control. Final Report.
Shields, F. K.; And Others
In order to meet the educational needs for a separate curriculum at the secondary level for technological training related to pollution and corrosion measurement and control, a 3-year, 1080-hour vocational program was developed for use in an area vocational high school. As one of four programs in the technology careers area, this curriculum design has been developed around local needs, as determined by a survey of business and industry. Funded by Pennsylvania's Research Coordinating Unit, the curriculum development project specified a wide range of instructional materials for a tentative course outline, under the title of "Environmental Control Technology." This report consists of a summary of activities undertaken during the development of these materials, intended for use in a 2-hour laboratory or shop program with a 1-hour physics or mathematics academic course. The curriculum outline, together with resource materials, are appended. (Author/AG)
