Technology education has the means of becoming the catalyst for integrated content and curricula, especially in core academic areas, such as science and mathematics, where it has been found difficult to incorporate other subject matter. Technology is diverse enough in nature that it can be addressed by a variety of content areas, serving as a true integrator. The study of technology and associated systems, paired with relevant hands-on experience based on real-world application, has great potential for students to learn about as well as apply technological solutions. This article aims to provide content and reasoning for the purposes of kinesthetic learning applications. Foundational information necessary for expanded investigational practices permits students to research, formulate, and evaluate solutions associated with technological and scientific problems. The information presented in this article will provide instructors with authentic content to serve as a knowledge base for activities. This content will assist in implementing Standard 15 of "Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology (STL)" into technology education classes. (Contains 3 figures.)
