Science & Technology

Science and Technology is both a form of knowledge that uses concepts and skills from other disciplines (including science) and the application of this knowledge to meet an identified need or solve a specific problem using materials, energy, and tools (including computers).

Science and Technology in PRIME

Science is a form of knowledge that seeks to describe and explain the natural and physical world and its place in the universe. Occasionally, the fundamental theories, concepts, and structures of science change but, for the most part, the basic ideas of science – ideas such as the cellular basis of life, the laws of energy, the particle theory of matter – have proven stable. Technology includes much more than the knowledge and skills related to computers and their applications.

Technology is also “a way of knowing” and a process of exploration and experimentation. Technological investigation involves the application of methods known as design processes, which in turn involve the use of concepts and procedures such as the identification of a need or problem and the selection of a best solution. The world as we know it today has been affected in many important ways by science and technology. For example, science has radically altered and expanded our understanding of earth and space, of the workings of the human body, and of the ways in which living things interact; technology has revolutionized the way we communicate and made vast changes in our lives through the discovery of new drugs and materials. It is important, therefore, that students see science and technology in this wider context – as endeavors with important consequences for people – and that they learn to relate their knowledge of science and technology to the world beyond the school.

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.

Galileo Galilei

The understanding of the close relationships between Science and Technology and how they impinge upon development is critical. While science helps us to know what exists and why it is or behaves that way, technology gives us the know-how and capability to achieve our human needs and wants. Both science and technology have basic knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that are necessary for development. The modern world is by and large a man made world where technology reigns. Technological advancement has tremendously enhanced human capability. It has extended the senses and created possibilities never before imagined. Our modern day political clout, economic might and socio-cultural transformations are subject to and functions of our technological capability.

Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important. - Bill Gates
