What is technology?

Technology is created when we apply science to create tools that help us live our lives, learn more, and do things we once thought impossible!

Technology has helped us advance in various ways. Millions of years ago, we began using things like fire and stone tools to survive. Then, we built better tools with new materials that were stronger. As time went on, we gained new tools as we continued to refine the ones we had before. This process continued all the way up till today, and we still develop new and exciting technology that will someday help the world.
