Aviation. Aerospace. Automotive Design.
intelitek’s Transportation Technology Curriculum (TTC) is an excellent introductory program for middle schools and high schools to inspire greater student awareness of the concepts, applications and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). With the relevant topic of Transportation Technology combined with contextualized project-based learning (PBL), TTC fosters deeper appreciation for STEM and its connection to real world issues. Students are exposed to viable 21st-century careers in the transportation industry and presented with a pathway to further educational opportunities in science, technology and engineering.
With classroom-friendly hardware and interactive e-learning curriculum, students reinforce concepts learned with authentic activities related to transportation technologies, including automotive design, aerodynamics and flight control. Activities and assessments enable students to develop critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills that will serve as a foundation for success in secondary and post-secondary education.
Courses are delivered on-line through LearnMate®, accessible anywhere, anytime. Classroom-friendly hardware activities reinforce concepts learned.
Through LearnMate, essential resources are provided for both students and teachers. Rich curriculum with videos, animations, simulations and activities help develop and reinforce comprehension. Interactive scenarios enable students to connect concepts to relevant issues and applications. Each screen provides one-click access to glossaries and help files.
Instructors have instant access to handouts, tips and detailed activity instructions. The self-paced curriculum allows teachers to focus on those students who need help without disrupting the flow of the class. Online assessments provide reports that identify skills gaps, enabling focused and comprehensive instruction.
