The work of the NSTC is organized under five primary committees: Environment, Natural Resources and Sustainability; Homeland and National Security; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education; Science; and Technology. The scientific approach to research is responsible for development of technology. It is true that technology these days must be viewed in terms of the changes brought into the existing communication systems through the computer. Science and technology has actually largely contributed to the vision of man about himself.

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.
