    Science and Technology 3
    • The new information changed how scientists viewed the living world.
    • The current classification system will be used only as long as it continues to answer questions scientists have or until a new discovery enables them to look at information in a different way.
  • 7. Who practices science?
    • Scientific discoveries have never been limited to people of one race, sex, culture, or time period, or to professional scientists.
    Science and Technology 3
    • In fact, students your age have made some important discoveries.
  • 8. Use of Scientific Information
    • Science provides new information every day that people use to make decisions.
    Science and Technology 3
    • However, science cannot decide whether the new information is good or bad, moral or immoral.
    • People decide whether the new information is used to help or harm the world and its inhabitants.
  • 9. Looking to the Future
    • Today’s scientists use cellular phones and computers to communicate with each other.
    Science and Technology 3
    • This information technology has led to the globalization, or worldwide distribution, of information.
  • 10. Looking to the Future
    • The Internet quickly spreads word of new discoveries.
    Science and Technology 3
    • New knowledge and technology brought about by these discoveries are shared by people in all countries.
    • Any information gathered from the Internet must be checked carefully for accuracy.
