GST focuses on gender issues in and of science and technology, including engineering, construction and the built environment, and aims to explore the intersections of policy, practice and research. 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.
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.
This journey has taken man centres but, it has been worth it. Now, having studied the gifts of Science to mankind, it will do us some good if we do some introspection and try also to study how, and to what extent we are now misusing our scientific knowledge.
