      Electronics
    • Technology involves:
      Tools
      Techniques and
      Procedures for putting the findings of science to use.
    • Interconnections between Science and Technology
      Science explores for the purpose of knowing, while technology explores for the purpose of making something useful from that knowledge.
    • Interconnections between Science and Technology
      • Science drives technology by making new technology possible through scientific breakthroughs.

    • Interconnections between Science and Technology
      • Engineers focus on using science to develop products.
    • Interconnections between Science and Technology
      Without technology, some science experiments would not be possible.
    • Interconnections between Science and Technology
      Without science, technology could not proceed.
      Science
      is a way of
      Knowing
      Technology
      is a way of Doing
    • Interconnections between Science and Technology
      The very questions that scientists ask are shaped by the available technology.
    • Interconnections between Science and Technology
      Science drives Technology
      Technology drives Science
    • Science and Technology
    • Think about it:
      Describe some of the interconnections between science and technology, using at least three specific examples.
      Use your notes to help.
      Write in complete sentences. (3 sentences minimum)
