- Today you will start learning about control systems.
A control system is a type of computer system that manages, commands and directs other devices or systems. There are open and closed loop control systems. They usually take an input, process it and get an output.

Our Big idea
The big idea for today is Control.
The essential questions for this topic are:
What is a control system? How does a control system work?
It takes time to explore and really understand a big idea. If you want to

We are learning this because as a designers must understand scientific and technical innovation. Designers use systems, models, methods, and processes to solve problems.
