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. Of Science and Technology are can be easily manipulated by irresponsible persons, we’ll be too independent in technology and without it we will fell hopeless, it affects our health and lifestyles, sometimes people can easily invade our privacy like hacking the systems and many more.
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.
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.
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.
