Year 7 - Technologies

The Australian Curriculum: Technologies is available for use: awaiting final endorsement. The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority has developed advice, guidelines and resources incorporating the Australian Curriculum. The Australian Curriculum: Technologies describes two distinct but related subjects: Design and Technologies, and Digital Technologies.

Engineering: more than bridges and roads - Technologies,Science,STEM (7,8,9,10). Engineers apply science, technology and innovation to the design of solutions to real-world problems. In this clip, civil engineering student Arna Smith describes some of the many fields and types of civil engineering projects, and how they impact people's lives. Find out what attracted Arna to engineering and how she hopes to have a positive impact on societies of the future.

Winning the race to feed a growing population - Geography,Technologies (7,8,9,10). The race is on to produce higher crop-yielding plants that will feed an ever-growing world population. See how scientists at the Plant Accelerator facility are investigating ways of increasing crop production. Some are focusing on conventional plant-breeding techniques while others are using GM (genetic modification) technology.

Breeding tolerance - Geography,Technologies (7,8,9,10). Breeding plants that will grow faster or produce more food is not a new idea. But using gene technology to 'future proof' food crops against expected environmental change is cutting edge. Whilst the science looks promising, some believe that the desire to protect and patent the technology may defeat its underlying purpose.

Teaching robotics with Bronwyn Moreton (part 1) - Technologies,STEM (7,8,9). How did Bronwyn from Asquith Girls High get interested in robots and robotics? Bronwyn introduces the school robotics club, tells us about Robocup and embedding robotics in the Australian Curriculum maths, science, and technologies learning areas.

Geckos' sticky feet - Technologies (7,8,9,10). Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk up a wall like a gecko? The scientists in this video have observed and studied the properties of gecko feet to develop products that can help us in our day-to-day lives. Can you think of some other special abilities of some animals that we could study and possibly replicate for our own use?

Meet the Robot Girls - Technologies (7,8,9,10). Have you heard of Robogals? Meet some girl students that are building and programming their own robots. Did you know that women outnumber men at Australian universities but when it comes to courses like engineering, men outnumber women? That's something Robogals is trying to change!

Friendly robots - STEM,Technologies (7,8). Imagine a robot that can work out how you're feeling and give you advice. Meet Matilda and Jack, robots that use software to recognise human emotion from facial expressions. See how they are being trialled with elderly people. Who knows, one day your best friend might be a robot!

Biomimicry robots - Technologies,STEM (7,8,9,10). When you think of a robot, what do you imagine?  'Biomimicry' aims to create robots that are more like forms we find in nature - flexible and pliant, which bend rather than break when confronted with an immovable object. What are the benefits of a robot like this?

Could cyborgs really exist? - Science,Technologies,STEM (7,8,9,10). A cyborg is a human or animal body incorporating robotic or computer technology. Could cyborgs ever exist outside film or television? Watch this clip to discover how cyborgs, or cybernetic organisms, are already being used to treat medical conditions like colour blindness. What future applications might there be for cybernetics technologies?

Can technology keep getting smaller and faster? - Science,Technologies,STEM (7,8,9,10). Since the first generation models of the 1940s, computers have dramatically shrunk in size while becoming much faster. Moore's Law predicts the rate at which computer speeds increase, but is there a limit to how small and fast computers can become? This clip describes the changes in computer hardware over time, their impact on our lives, and predictions for future computing.
