A new Lemelson-MIT program, compares the beliefs of teens and adults of how technology will shape the future with an invention index. Many teens believe that technology will solve a range of the world’s problems including famine and pollution. Still only fourteen percent of the students in the study named technology as their primary interest in a career. With Arts and Medicine listed as their top choices, I sincerely doubt these teens will not have a technology-emphasis in their career choices.
I wonder if teens don’t see technology as a part of their career or if they take for granted that technology will be embedded in their career choice?
