Transcript of The Clock

The Clock By: Scotty Ingham and Alex Welcher What is the purpose of your artifact? The clock is an instrument used to indicate, keep, and coordinate time. Who was the original inventor, and when was your product invented? The first pendulum for the clock was invented in 1656 by Christian Huygens. In 1577, Jost Burgi invented the first minute hand. The first fully put together quartz clock was invented in 1927, by Canadian-born Warren Marrison. How was your product used when originally invented? How is it used today? The clock is used the same way as it was when it was invented. It is mainly used to keep track of time. Clocks with a seconds hand can also be used to time how long things take. What are some major innovations that this product has undergone since its original invention? A major innovation that the clock has undergone since its original invention is switching from analog to digital. Which of these areas of technology best classifies the artifact?
Information and communication
Bio-related and Agricultural
Production (which includes manufacturing and construction) Using my best judgement, I would say that the clock would best fall into the category of Information and Communication because the clock gives people the information of what time it is. Example Science Technology Engineering Math The Clock Science was used in the creation of my artifact because the scientists had to experiment ideas that they were given by the engineers. Technology was used a lot in the creation of the clock, especially in the creation of the digital clock because the engineers used technology to make clocks digital. Engineering took a big part in the creation of the clock. The engineers use technology and math to come up with ideas on how to improve the clock. Then they give the idea to the scientists so that it can be tested. Math helps clock creation run like clockwork. (wink, wink;)) The engineers use math to come up with ideas that they think will work and improve it. How has this product impacted society in a positive way? The clock has impacted society in a positive way because the clock has really helped everyone be more organized. Plus, think about how many times you hear "what time is it?" in one day. This shows that the clock takes a big part in our every day lives. How has the clock impacted society in a negative way? There is only one way that I personally think the clock has impacted society in a negative way. I think daylight savings time is the only thing associated with the clock that has impacted society in a negative way. This is negative because if you forget about daylight savings and have the wrong time then you could possibly be late to everywhere you have to attend. Find a quote about the invention or one of its innovations from the original inventor or one of the engineers ho innovated the technological artifact. I believe that we do not know anything for certain, but everything probably. — Christiaan Huygens The End Thanks for watching =)
