ABSTRACT
During the summer of 1999 the author participated in a study tour of Britain's Design and Technology curriculum, funded by the Technical Foundation of America. One of the concepts that the author and his colleagues focused on was redesign. Students in technology education classes do not spend as much time incorporating design, research, and redesign into activities as they do in Great Britain. But, when you consider other academic subjects, redesign is instrumental. We talk about the usual transportation topics: modes of transportation, aerodynamics, design, and the effects they have on the transportation vehicle. The students have the opportunity to design and produce two magnetic levitation vehicles (maglevs) that need to hold a certain amount of passengers or cargo. In the "Time magazine" article "The Redesign Of America," the authors discuss how America has finally joined the design wave.
