If we look life 100 years ago, and compare that with the today’s life, we will notice that Science has dramatically changed human life. Research in the School is rich and diverse, with staff conducting internationally recognised and world-leading research (REF2014) of major importance to society, providing significant contributions to scientific knowledge, advanced research training and opportunities for commercial exploitation.

Science as defined here is sometimes termed pure science to differentiate it from applied science, which is the application of scientific research to specific human needs. We now know from nanopolymer research, that such an electromagnetic life-science ethic is associated with the functioning of the centriole within the human cell, giving glimpses of a truly supra technology beyond our previous ability to imagine.

The Science and Technology Studies program evolved from the former Science, Technology, and Society Program. Science and Technology is rich in specialised words, many of which have both everyday as well as technical definitions. Students’ understandings and abilities are grounded in the experience of inquiry, and inquiry is the foundation for the development of understandings and abilities of the other content standards.

Subsequently, science and technology have assisted in advancing various fields including Mathematics, Astrophysics, Space technology, Nuclear energy and more. Evidence should be drawn from local, cluster-wide, regional and national information, using a range of established sources, e.g. the National Network for Excellence in Science and Technology.

Therefore, as well as understanding about employment, training and apprenticeships, learners should be provided with information and the opportunity to engage with a range of learning providers. At the same time, emerging technologies (including machine learning) offer new opportunities that require access to reusable data available in distributed, yet interoperable, international data resources.
