TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM GOALS
    * UNDERSTAND that technology is an EXTENSION OF HUMAN
      CAPABILITY.
    * RECOGNIZE that systems are made up of individual components and that each
      component affects the operation of the system and its RELATIONSHIP to
      OTHER SYSTEMS.
    * DEFINE problems, gather information, explore options, devise solutions,
      evaluate the outcome, and communicate results.
    * UNDERSTAND that TECHNOLOGY AFFECTS SOCIETY and the
      ENVIRONMENT in ways that are both planned and unplanned and desirable
      and undesirable.
