Have you ever caught yourself questioning the science and technology in movies? Have you ever wondered what goes on in the head of that film buff who only critiques the engineering design in a movie but overlooks the storyline? In this course, we explore movies like you’ve never experienced them before. From the geekiness of “Q” from James Bond films to the interactions between humans and robots in Wall-E, and the science of superheroes in The Avengers. Students will learn about design principles and technology in immersive and action-packed environments. Additionally, students will learn about the design process, computational tools, and a multitude of other elements that bring movies to life. Students will have opportunities to investigate some of the deeper elements of props and gadgets used on film sets, including learning about the dynamics of the Titanic’s steam engine, the mechanical properties of Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak, and even the exo-skeleton and logic processing of Tony Stark’s Iron Man. Students will also create their own movies, present them, and practice public speaking at an awards ceremony.
