Science Meets Real Life
are naturally inquisitive and have always asked questions about the
world around them. Many questions could not be answered due to a lack of
available technology, but many others could be answered through the
process of trial and error. Over time, the way humans ask and answer
questions about the natural world was developed and shaped into what is
now call the scientific method. It allows scientists to conduct research
in a systematic, organized fashion.
As humans make new scientific
discoveries, they are able to develop additional technologies. For
example, historically people used the bark and leaves from the willow
tree to treat fevers and pains. This was a traditional medicine that
people shared with one another via word of mouth. As technology
advanced, the materials from the willow tree could be analyzed in a lab
and the components could be studied to see which natural chemicals were
responsible for reducing the fevers and pain. Research showed that the
willow tree contained a form of salicylic acid and that this was what
gave it its healing powers. This scientific research led to the
development of the aspirin we use today which is now mass produced (and
that you have probably taken at some point in your lifetime).
depend on many technologies throughout your day that make your modern
life possible. In this assignment you will look at some of these
technologies and the scientific discoveries that made them possible. You
will evaluate both the negative and positive impacts of these
discoveries. You will also broaden your scope to look at how different
cultures with different levels of access to technology approach the same
problem – health care.
Part I Science in your personal and professional life
Think about your day from the time you wake up to the time that you go to sleep.
- List four technologies
that you rely on and would find it difficult to get through your
day/night without. Do these technologies have any negative impacts on
your life? Why or why not?
- Think about your day from when you wake up to when you go to sleep. Describe one scientific discovery that makes modern life possible.
as many negative and positive impacts you can think of that this
scientific discovery and the technologies that it allowed to be
developed may have. Evaluate and discuss if the positives outweigh the
negatives overall, or whether the negatives outweigh the positives.
Part II Science and technology in a multicultural world
research programs around the world focus on the discovery of cures to
ailments from cancer to mental illness. Modern society invests a great
deal of money, and time while pushing the boundaries of modern
technology to develop new cures, and improve existing treatments.
Review the following Unit 9 Assignment Resources
- Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to the westernized high tech research approach to medical treatment.
- Describe one advantage and one disadvantage to using traditional medicine as an approach to medical treatment.
- Are there benefits to having multicultural approaches to medical treatment? Explain your answer.
- Could these two cultural approaches both be improved by drawing upon the other? Why or why not?
any challenges there may be in combining these two different cultural
approaches to treatment that have a very different level of reliance on
scientific research and technology.
