“Beam me up, Scotty” was the stuff of TV science fiction back in the 60’s, but now thanks to advances in science and quantum physics, this reality might be closer than you think all thanks to technology grants. Thanks to technology, we can now watch young Palestinian children grow up in real time thousands of miles away right here on Earth. We can send robots to Mars and examine the chemical composition of the planet. Thanks to grants for technology, we can save lives that were once doomed to death.
Technology is defined as the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society and the environment. Drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science and pure science. Grants for technology are awarded to budding youngsters in public schools to foster growing imaginations – who says the mind of a six year old can’t change the world! Technology grants are awarded for NASA explorations, new quantum computer experiments where the computer works at the speed of light, and above all grants for technology help us brew that absolutely perfect cup of fresh coffee in the morning!
Grants for Technology
Grants for technology in applied medical sciences helped build and test the first mechanical heart. Thanks to grants for technology, former Vice President Dick Chaney no longer has a heartbeat – or a pulse. Chaney depends on an artificial heart to keep him alive. Cheney’s device, which is almost like a partial artificial heart, is battery-powered and was conceived thanks to grants for technology. Implanted in his chest, the device is connected to a cable that comes out of the body and connects to a mini computer that plugs into a battery pack. Could this be the inspiration of that six year old budding scientist? From the minds of children come great things!
Government Technology Grants
One thing you’ll notice when you walk into federal government offices in the morning is the smell of fresh coffee. I know if I were a scientist that would be a very important use for government technology grants awards – brewing the absolutely perfect cup of fresh coffee! Usually, the technologists and scientists of government agencies have more important use for that government technology grants money! The Department of Homeland Security is testing out a turnstile which can measure emotion and even sniff out explosives. The National Institutes of Health awards government technology grants to medical schools, scientists and researchers to cure disease. The National Science Foundation awards millions of dollars every single year in new projects which aid in our understanding of reality and the makeup of the world in which we live. Government technology grants also help assure the safety of all Americans thanks to the Department of Defense.
From the minds of six year olds come inspirations for new ideas that keep us alive longer, send robots to Mars and help us build computers that work at the speed of light. “Beam me up, Scotty” may have the stuff of TV science fiction back in the day, but now at least we can have a good cup of coffee beforehand, thanks to grants for technology!
