Wikipedia

  1. Science and technology

    Science and technology is a topic that encompasses science, technology, and the interactions between the two. Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of explanations and predictions about nature and the universe. Technology is 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. Science may drive technological development, by generating demand for new instruments to address a scientific question, or by illustrating technical possibilities previously unconsidered. In turn, technology may drive scientific investigation, by creating demand for technological improvements that can only be produced through research, and by raising questions about the underlying principles that a new technology relies on. For the majority of human history, technological improvements were achieved by chance, trial and error, or spontaneous inspiration. When the modern scientific enterprise matured in the Enlightenment, it primarily concerned itself with basic questions of nature. Research and development directed towards immediate technical application is a relatively recent occurrence, arising with the Industrial Revolution and becoming commonplace in the 20th century.

Examples of Science and Technology in a Sentence

  1. Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.:

    Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response. Expelled from individual consciousness by the rush of change, history finds its revenge by stamping the collective unconsciousness with habits, values, expectations, dreams. The dialectic between past and future will continue to form our lives.

  2. Carl Sagan:

    We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.

  3. John Kenneth Galbraith:

    The real accomplishment of modern science and technology consists in taking ordinary men, informing them narrowly and deeply and then, through appropriate organization, arranging to have their knowledge combined with that of other specialized but equally ordinary men. This dispenses with the need for genius. The resulting performance, though less inspiring, is far more predictable.

  4. Chuck Lorre:

    We were reading articles about how kids here and in England were gravitating to STEM fields, both in high school and college, because they’d been impacted by the show, ‘The Big Bang Theory’ actually caused them to look into science and technology and math as career goals. You don’t set out to make a sitcom anticipating you might cause somebody to change their life.

  5. Chika Onuegbu:

    "Courage is not just about bravery. It is also about integrity and persistence to do the right thing against all odds and in the midst of danger. It is not the bravery of a criminal to execute heinous crimes such as suicide bombing, or daredevil armed robbery etc. It is therefore important to point out that the courage we are talking about here is moral courage, which has been described as the essence of leadership." Chika Onuegbu in his 2016 paper titled "The Courage to Stand For Students Union" presented to the Students Union Government of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology.
