Technology Education is an integrated, experienced-based instructional program designed to prepare a population that is knowledgeable about technology – its evolution, systems, techniques, uses and social and cultural significance. It results in the application of mathematics and science concepts to develop solutions to practical problems and extend human capabilities.
Technology education is an essential component of a comprehensive and experience-based science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) program. It develops technological literacy among students by demonstrating how mathematics and science is applied to the process of engineering design.
