The social processes through which scientific and technical knowledge—whether packaged into texts, people, machines, images, or other forms—is created, evaluated, challenged, spread, transformed, and fitted into social relations. 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.
Technology , the collection of techniques, methods or processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation, or any other consumer demands. It is ideal for students pursuing careers in law, public policy or management, as well as for scientists, engineers and others interested in science, technology and society. Movie Making combines reading, writing, theatre arts, and technology into one dynamic and exciting project. This relationship is best understood through Science and Technologies Studies (STS). The reason is that people need to recognize that there are people who are affected by the science and technology. Ebooks are another way to combine writing and technology into an interactive and dynamic product. Infrastructure in the society has grown with the help of science and technology.
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.
