Science and Technology
The things I learned in Soctec I have learned many things in Soctec. It was a fun course. There are many topics we tackled about science such as the science itself as a form of knowledge and as a mode of inquiry and science as a social construction. Overall, this subject made some changes in me. The things I learned will guide me and prepare me for my future. This course inspired me to do my best as a future scientist. There are many significant ideas I have learned and encountered in Soctec such as the importance of earning science, technology and the effect of these to the society.
Learning science is necessary. From an early age, we interact with our environment, asking questions and seeking answers. This question-and-answer process lies at the heart of knowing and doing science. It is a way of knowing and thinking about the natural and physical components of the world in which we live. Through this Soctec class, science was the main tool used to inspire us physics students by tackling and discussing the fundamentals on to the deep scientific topics. Second, why should we study technology?
Technology is a product of studying science deeply. Almost every aspect of our daily life such as food, health care, transport, communications, entertainment, our environment uses technology. It is constantly evolving and is changing the way we look at things and how we do things. Moreover, how does science and technology affect the everyday living of people? Like I said, science and technology are correlated. Nowadays, computer is the most useful and popular invention to every eople. Some may say that they can’t do anything without a computer.
Well, in fact it is true because computer makes life more enjoyable and through this, we may be able to discover and explore new things. Using computer is like an adventure. It provides us all the information and is used to solve mathematical calculations. Through science and technology, it is easier for us to communicate other people. It is also significant in the field of business because transactions and other events are done through the computer. Science and technology let every people live in an easy and modern life.
It opens the door and allows people to enter into a new world which is fully developed and well civilized. Science and technology is not giving us only the positive side but it also has its disadvantages that truly affect human life. If we look around the surroundings, it is so crowded, polluted and damaged which is caused mainly by the existence of invented technologies throughout the world. Its existence totally affects our mother earth and our natural environment is replaced by new big uildings and factories that are managed by technology- based owners.
In conclusion, these aren’t all the things I have learned from this fun class. Attitude wise, this class made me a better critical thinker. As a science student, being able to think critically is an advantage anytime and anywhere. Soctec really helped me in many ways. It changed my impression of science. At first, I was like I Just need to study Just for the sake of my grades. But now, I really know what is science all world. I really love Soctec. It changed my whole impression of science.
