Students learn that technology transfer occurs when a new user applies an existing technology developed for one purpose to a different function. Groups work together, applying mathematics, science, and engineering concepts to projects that combine systems such as energy and power, agriculture and biotechnology, information and communication, manufacturing, construction, transportation, and medical technologies. Students engage in thematic activities to learn that the transfer of a technology from one society to another can cause cultural, social, economic, and political changes that affect both societies to varying degrees.
