Technology is more than just video games, Hollywood movies, and television shows. Technology leads us to a greater understanding of science concepts by exploring our world. Explorers such as Jeff Corwin and Jack Hanna take us closer to animals around the world. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station show us how scientific results on Earth differ from that in space.
Technology leads us to new discoveries and inventions. In the field of health, we are living longer due to penicillin, vaccines, pacemakers, and medicine. Technology makes us safer with inventions such as air bags and seat belts. If fact, we rely on technology so much that students may find it difficult to know what to do when the power goes out.
