Differentiate science from technology.
Are the processes of scientific investigation similar to technological design?
Cite a technological innovation on invention /product and evaluate it on the basis of:
Illustrate the harms and benefits of technology.
1. Science can be called a systematic knowledge base developed through observation and
experiment of the
and behavior of the physical and natural world;
application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes.
the design process is a linear sequence of events that has a start and an end
point. (Sometimes you have to go back a stage if new inform
ation comes to light. In certain cases
you may only look at one or two stages).
Design is a problem solving activity that requires the
precise definition of the problem at the start.
Design is concerned with decisions of taste, choice
and sensitivity and r
elies on your value judgments. In Science you must not make value
judgments, you must report what happens.
Everyone wants his or her computer to be efficient. P
eople don’t buy computers in the hope
that they will run slowly, freeze up, and generally cause problems. They buy computers with the
expectation that they’re going to be able to do a lot with their new machine, and that they won’t
have to wait forever for
boot up, downloads, or other things. All computers can experience
problems sometimes, of course, because that’s just the nature of electronics. These problems
should be few and far between, and you can help them stay that way by keeping your computer
There is a lot of plastic in
is what makes up the outer shell. the circuits and
transistors are mainly made of silicon.
transistors and wires are soldered together with a
variety of elements, such as tin, zinc, or copper.
Liquid cooling systems
are mainly water based,
but could be oil based, depending on the system
Overall technology helps us more than it harms us. Tha
t's why life expectancy keeps going up
with technology. And it's not just a
a cause and effect relationship can easily be
shown to exists. But I think, I think it makes us lazy in some ways.
