Take Tech is an educational program for children from upper elementary school to high school designed to foster familiarity with everyday technology.
The focus is technology we depend on in our daily lives, such as products found in people’s homes, information systems and machines. Why were they created, and how do they work? Each episode features one key tech, and explains its mechanism and function in an easy-to-understand way. The program closes with a “Question” segment that encourages viewers to do some independent research to sum up what they’ve learned.
