Technology is the use of scientific knowledge for practical purposes or applications. Technology can be mechanical or electronic technology. We are most familiar with electronic technology which is a complex form of technology that uses electric circuits. Anything that runs on electricity is electronic. This includes computers, washing machines, dryers, MP3, televisions, anything you plug into an electricity supply. There’s industrial and manufacturing technology, medical technology, communications technology and many more!

Robotics is an interdisciplinary research area at the interface of computer science and engineering. Robotics involves design, construction, operation, and use of robots. The goal of robotics is to design intelligent machines that can help and assist humans in their day-to-day lives and keep everyone safe. Robotics draws on the achievement of information engineering, computer engineering, mechanical engineering and electronic engineering. Furthermore, robotics education combines all four STEM subjects into one hands-on learning tool.
