The purpose of this article is to provide applicable instructional strategy for teachers and researchers, which reflects the history of the exchange of science and technology between the West and the East. This research had as its foundation the mechanical drawings of Gigidoseol [Strange machines from the far West], Hwaseongseongyeoguigwe [A completion report for the Construction of Hwaseong Fortress]. This study provides science and technology teachers with a detailed instructional strategy to explain the traditional block-and-tackle and gear mechanisms. The examples of traditional mechanical drawings introduced in this paper will complement science and technology class materials. The core principle of traditional mechanical drawing based education is to utilize the traditional sciences as a medium that connects Science, Technology and History.
