A definition of Technology is “the use of science in industry, engineering, etc., to invent useful things or to solve problems“. As a technologist, I strive to apply my experience, knowledge, and skills towards the above definition in its broadest form, with the overall goal of teaching and training youth to understand the use and purpose of technology, and its role in the development of a community, nation, and world.
