Ritz, John M.; Carper, Susan
Technology Teacher, v67 n6 p10-15 Mar 2008
Ship transportation includes various forms of technology. Ships have special designs to meet technological needs. They are used to transport people and cargoes and have been a major part of history throughout civilization. Products are available from around the world because they can be economically moved from producers to consumers. Not only are the ships of today technological marvels, but the supporting technology needed to load and move cargoes require special designs and materials. Ship transportation is a part of modern society and is a topic that can open students to the cultures and economics of the world. (Contains 4 figures.)
