The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) was established by Executive Order on November 23, 1993. You can create class journals on a novel study, a themed blog on a social studies or science topic, literature circle blogs, individualized reading and journaling blogs, poetry blogs, fiction blogs, and more. Science has been modified the opinion about the origin of man and place of origin too.
The invention of computers has assisted the process of calculation in laboratories but science has been responsible for pollution and has given us the nuclear bomb which threatens our very existence like what happened in nagasaki and hiroshima in world war 2. But what i can say is that the science is not the fault of all of that but what are the people’s intention to use science in their bad motivation in their lives.
In generalization, as far as what I learned or I should say as far as what I know Science and Technology have great affects in our society and community like advantages and disadvantages of our society but it can only occur when a person using it use it in good purposes or bad purposes.
Through its teaching as well as its research, the department is playing a notable role in building the emerging discipline of Science & Technology Studies (STS). News and information moves online at warp speed, and bloggers are the engine on the keyboard. Science has contributed largely to this since it is through continued research that new machines are being unveiled. The Science & Technology Studies Major furthers students’ understanding of the social and cultural meanings of science and technology. Controversies such as modified foods, stem cell research are the issues that have brought policy makers and scientists together to have a way forward on this.
When trying to answer the question ‘What is the meaning of science and technology?’ we have to view science as the study of the natural world while technology has to be viewed as the study of how to manipulate the natural world in order to suit man.
