National Technology Day is annually celebrated on January 06 in the United States to commemorate the impacts technology has and will have in our lives.
The scope of technology is consistently improving and evolving, paving the way for further growth and development of every aspect of our lives. Ever since the invention of the wheel, humans have done nothing but test their boundaries and outdone them.
While we could have never thought about flying a century back, the advent of technology now allows us to automate our lives. Push everything aside, the invention of smartphones has revolutionized our present and will do so in the future.
This article will walk you through the importance of National Technology Day, the kind of history it holds, and the significance of this day too.
What is National Technology Day?
National Technology Day is celebrated as an unofficial holiday on January 06 every year in the United States.
The day was officially declared and announced by AXEL, a technology-based company. They are headquartered in Las Vegas.
The primary objective behind celebrating National Technology Day is to commemorate the impacts technology has left in our lives. It further emphasizes and glorifies the contributions made by leading scientists and researchers to transform our lives with technology in every living and breathing aspect of our lives.
Why is National Technology Day celebrated?
The concept of National Technology Day isn’t just localized to the United States. In India, the day is celebrated on May 22 annually to celebrate the growth, prosperity, and diversity of technology and its impacts on our day-to-day lives.
In the United States, the initiation of National Technology Day was done by AXEL to celebrate the small and big wins in technology. The day emphasizes the importance of technology and how it has transformed our lives for the better.
The origin of technology is as old as humanity. Thanks to science and its applications, what started as basic machinery using the available resources has transformed and evolved beyond our imagination.
To think that technology was built and implemented daily is a complete lie. Instead, it spans over centuries and will keep growing similarly in the future.
Delegating one day to celebrate the progress of technology was an amazing move by Axel. Since technology has webbed itself into our lives, helping us in every part, it is a given that we celebrate its significance one day a year.
Besides popularizing technology, National Technology Day is also celebrated to remember the leading contributors to this revolution. Ever since the invention of the Wheel, humans have evolved and transpired with their innovations, and this day celebrates that uniqueness.
Every technological invention we have today was born from one person or a group of people’s ideologies. However, the execution requires all hands on deck, and this national day celebrates every person who has in some way contributed to the transformations involving technology in our lives.
