Major Assignment Expectations




The topic is to be picked by you and approved by Mr. Dinner. Pick one that is interesting to you and will keep you interested. The topic must be centred on a transportation device for land, sea, space, or air. Your grade twelve project must contain information on a transportation system for the future.


Some examples could be active suspension, electronic steering, advanced propulsion systems, hybrid vehicles, hydrogen power, alternative fuels or computer control and guidance technology. Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) and proton exchange membranes (PEM) are two topics that I am really interested in reading about.


Your project should be 1500 to 2000 words, typed, include three pictures and double-spaced. All pages should be numbered. Most word processors can automatically double-space, add page numbers and count the words.




Cover Page: Must be presentable and professional looking in appearance. One

picture, a title, your name, Mr. Dinner's name, the date, and the course name (Transportation Technologies) should all appear on the cover page.


Table of Contents: Must include the locations of your three mandatory pictures and the key components within your assignment.


Pictures: These pictures can be technical in nature if you wish but all the pictures must have a description.


Bibliography: Tell me where you located your information (web-site, book, etc) what year it was published and the author's name.
