Technology Education includes a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) based courses designed to teach creative and critical thinking, modeling and prototyping skills, measurement, analytical reasoning, design, troubleshooting, teamwork skills, identifying problems, creating solutions and applying the best solution to solve problems.
Technology Education courses use tools, materials, and processes to design solutions to technological problems.
Technology Education classrooms and laboratories are active learning environments. Students engage in real-world design and problem solving activities. Students learn about the technological world while they research, design, develop, invent, innovate, experiment, troubleshoot, and solve real-world practical problems.
The ultimate goal of Technology Education is to produce technologically literate citizens. Citizens who can activity participate in our advanced technological society, and citizens who can design and solve problems to satisfy human needs and wants.
