    Thesis covers the role and scope of history of technology in teaching elementary design and technology compulsory subject in the 6th – 8th grade. It encompasses degree of historic involvement in design and technology curriculum and the existing textbooks and workbooks. It is primarily intended for a technology teacher. First, we describe the essential adjoining concepts such as engineering, technique, technology, inventions and innovations. Then we present the development of technique/engineering and technology through time, which is divided into five periods (prehistory, ancient times, the middle ages, new age and information modernity). In each of them we highlight some of the dominant discoveries. Further, we revise the curriculum from the technology -historic aspect and extract relevant learning goals and standards. The textbooks and workbooks goals and standards content coverage is examined. Based on the review we provide suggestions for meaningful involvement of history of technology by individual content sets and an overview of achieved goals. In conclusion, we present the results of the topics covered and give the conclusions to improve the engineering educational process of design and technology in elementary school.
