PLAY
Agriculture
The raising of crops and animals for food, feed, fiber, fuel, or other useful products.
Artifact
A human-made object.
Biotechnology
All the technology connected with plant and animal life.
Communication
The transmission of information through a common system of symbols, signs, behavior, speech, writing, or signals.
Construction
The act or process of building, erecting, or constructing buildings, roads, or other structures.
Energy
The ability to do work. Energy is one of the basic resources used by a technological system.
Engineering
Using technological and scientific knowledge to solve practical problems.
Environment
The surroundings in which a person, animal, or plant lives.
Ergonomics
The study of workplace equipment design or how to arrange and design devices, machines, or workspace so that people and things interact safely and most efficiently.
Industrial
Of, relating to, or resulting from industry.
Innovation
An improvement of an existing technological product, system, or method of doing something.
Invention
A new product, system, or process that has never existed before, created by study and experimentation.
Manufacturing
The process of making a raw material into a finished product; especially in large quantities.
Math
The science of patterns and order and the study of measurement, properties, and the relationships of quantities using numbers and symbols.
Nanotechnology
The science and technology of building devices, such as electronic circuits, from single atoms and molecules.
Process
Human activities used to create, invent, design, transform, produce, control, maintain, and use products or systems; a sequence of actions that combines resources to produce an output.
Science
The study of our natural world through observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanations.
System
A group of interacting, interrelated, or interdependent elements or parts that function together as a whole to accomplish a goal.
Technology
The way people use resources to meet their wants and needs.
Transportation
The process by which passengers or goods are moved or delivered from one place to another.
STEM
Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics
Information Technology
The process of gathering and storing data to be used in various forms
COmmunication Technology
Giving or exchanging information
Agricultural Technology
Produces plants and animals for food, fiber and fuel
Medical Technology
Creates tools to treat disease and injury
Environmental Technology
Creates tools to minimize the effects of the technology on the development of living things
Manfacturing Technology
Changes natural or synthetic materials into usable products
Construction Technology
Builds structures that support loads and protectgs us from the enviornment
Materials Technology
Development of materials with outstanding combinatiosn of mechanical, chemical, and electrical properties that make other advances possible.
Transportation Technology
PRovides a way for people, animals, products, and materials to be moved from one place to the next
Energy and Power Technology
Energy is the ability or capacity to do work. Power is the rate at which hergy is transformed from one form to another.
Top Four Engineers
Chemical, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical
Chemical Engineers
