SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCTION.
"Technology, which is basically derived from the Greek word ‘technologia’."
The evolution of science and technology is like a boon to the world, as human beings come to know a lot about the world they are living in including the activities they indulge in.
Furthermore, the development of technology along with advancement in science helps to bring in a revolution in various fields such as medicine, agriculture education, information and technology, and many more.
Science fundamentally is the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the natural and physical world through observations and experiments. Technology, which is basically derived from the Greek word ‘technologia’ is an art, skill or ability, which is used to create and develop products and require knowledge.
Scientist used their knowledge to develop technology and then use technology to develop science, so because of this reason science and technology are integrated terms in today’s world. Science and technology are important parts of our day-to-day life.
We get up in the morning from the ringing of our alarm clocks and go to bed at night after switching our lights off. All of these luxuries that we are able to afford are resultant of science and technology.
There are numerous science and technology are integrated they range from the little things to the big ones. For instance, the morning paper which we read that delivers us reliable information is a result of scientific progress. In addition, the electrical devices without which life is hard to imagine like a refrigerator and microwave are a result of technological advancement.
Technology is a source of scientific challenges the development in the field of technology paves way for research and development in the field of science. For example, space science is one of them. Technological development likewise indirectly stimulates basic research in the field of science.
Today with new technology, medical research is being done every day to help find the cures or vaccines for devastating diseases such as Covid-19, cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer’s, and Leukemia. Being diagnosed with one of these diseases is hard but growing up with one of them is even harder.
The development that we see around us is a result of science and technology. Science and technology allow us to live a comfortable life that is why we have (SAASTA) the South African Agency for Science and Technology advancement that aims to enhance the economy of our country and make awareness of science and technology.
