One of the ThreeKindreds of the Eldar
Tolkien's theme "curiosity killed the cat" applies to the crafty elves that we would call "scientific" or "technological". Unlike dwarves or humans, rising up from a stone age to an iron age, the Valar started the Noldor at the top, in an age of pure crystals.
Their meddling and reckless lust for knowledge caused great troubles across two entire continents.
The Noldar are the second group of elves to have left Middle Earth and travel to Valinar. When Melkor took the Simarils, they followed him back to Middle Earth to try to reclaim them. The war with him comprised the First Age of Middle Earth.
