Tech Concepts Education
Everyday tech remains a mystery to most people. Most people are starting at zero. Even if schools taught tech effectively, much of the tech did not exist when today’s adult generations were in school. The underlying concepts are both unbelievably simple and usually apply to a wide range of consumer products even if the products look very different.

8. Tech basics of digital cameras. Electrical engineers are often into photography because digital cameras nerdize art.
9. General tech consumer:
