Technology – Final Exam Study Guide  – Essay 
October 18, 2011

One of the big ideas of this course so far has been that of technology being a creative act.  The word technology comes from the Greek word techne  which means art or to make.   Technology is about making things to satisfy needs, solve problems and increase our capabilities. 

Use the questions below as a guide to writing a one-page essay about the invention project you made.  The essay should use size 12 font, be single spaced, with a double space between paragraphs.  First write your essay in Word (make sure you save your Word file), then post it to the blog at:
