The content standards presented in this chapter outline what students should know, understand, and be able to do in natural science. Whereas, environmental science is multidisciplinary in nature, and includes the study of environmental systems, integrating both its biological and physical aspects, with an interdisciplinary approach. Science and technology challenge intellectual property systems, particularly patent laws.
Students need solid knowledge and understanding in physical, life, and earth and space science if they are to apply science. The personal and social aspects of science are emphasized increasingly in the progression from science as inquiry standards to the history and nature of science standards.
The reason is that people need to recognize that there are people who are affected by the science and technology. Science has brought sophistication to human life. Science and technology has been and will continue to be influential in helping people understand, believe, and better themselves.
According to a report released on May 16, 2013, in a major medical breakthrough, scientists have for the first time converted human skin cells into embryonic stem cells. Science has adequately, energetically and productively advanced, changed, civilized, enhanced and progressed human life.
Science and technology provide many societal benefits, such as the enhancement of economic growth or quality of life. Infrastructure in the society has grown with the help of science and technology. The Science of Genetics opening new doors of understanding the human gene and cell. As knowledge itself becomes more valuable, people and institutions seek additional protection for control of the knowledge and its profits.
25: Research in the field of science and technology has made people open-minded and cosmopolitan, because the Scientist does not like to travel on the beaten track and he always tries to find out new things, new explorations, new discoveries and new inventions.
At the same time, society has an increasing need for access to some kinds of knowledge and protection from the use of others. Environmental science is the scientific study of the ways in which biological, physical, and chemical components of the environment interact, and the relations between them.
Science, Technology, Biology And Our Future
Physics is the branch of science pertaining to the study of different forms of matter, their properties, interactions, and transformations, etc. Because of issues of morality and professional ethics lawyers, public officials, civil servants, and business people are increasingly called upon to make decisions requiring a basic understanding of science and technology and their ethical, social, and environmental consequences.
26: Science has also brought medical equipments that help to save human life. Many people around the world take for example scholars in colleges and universities have taken the lead examining the relationship between science and technology. The society needs science and technology.
Earth science is the branch of science pertaining to the study of the origin, structure, and phenomena of the planet Earth. Without society then there would be no science and technology and that is why the invention of certain tools and equipment have helped achieve big things.
A new era of science has begun. Environmental technology is the application of environmental science and sustainable development, for the purpose of environmental conservation, by curbing negative impacts of human-environment interaction, and protecting the natural environment. Environmental technology (EnviroTech) is also called green technology (GreenTech) and clean technology (CleanTech).
It provides the basis of much of modern technology – the tools, materials, techniques, and sources of power that make our lives and work easier. The new technique devised by the scientists is a variation of a commonly used method called somatic cell nuclear transfer.
Science, Technology, And Intellectual Property
If we look life 100 years ago, and compare that with the today’s life, we will notice that Science has dramatically changed human life. In short science has changed, improved, enhanced, modified and refined human life in all ways. In their study, the scientists investigated the genetic basis of six autoimmune diseases. 2: Science has changed the people and their living, life style, food habits, sleeping arrangements, earning methods, the way of communication between people and recreational activities.
Technology is the use of scientific knowledge to create new things. Multidisciplinary perspectives also increase from the subject-matter standards to the standard on the history and nature of science, providing many opportunities for integrated approaches to science teaching.
The personal and social aspects of science are emphasized increasingly in the progression from science as inquiry standards to the history and nature of science standards.
