What is technology? Technology is the use of science and knowledge to create systems, methods, machines, and equipment that can help us carry out a specific task. Since we first appeared on the planet more than 200,000 years ago, human beings have used technology to make life easier. The earliest technology involved making simple tools to catch and prepare food and to build somewhere to live. Over the years, as our knowledge has grown, we have developed more advanced forms of technology to produce everything we need. This includes the food on our plates, the buildings we live in, the transport we use, and even the robotic craft we send beyond Earth to explore space.
