THE CONTEXT 1:

Influence of Science & Technology

Science and technology have transformed human civilisation from stone age to silicone age. Applying scientific knowledge through technology has resulted in better tools for observation which in turn has led to advance in science of atoms to universe and unravelling the mysteries of nature. Such knowledges have been exploited to ease and improve the quality of life.

 Though these are spread over several millennia, knowledge has expanded in an exponential way during the last three centuries leading to technological revolution transforming daily lives, to the point where our lives are dependent on it.

The conveniences that we enjoy today like advanced transportation on earth and  outer space, robotic manufacturing & artificial intelligence that turned science fiction to reality, computations that can out smart human thinking process,, efficient communication, space travel, precise medical diagnostics equipment's, genetic engineering, nano materials, research - from deepest parts of ocean to vast land surface earth and to outer most galaxies of the universe, are some of the path breaking achievements in the fields of science and technology.

THE CONTEXT 2:

The age of anxiety

An apt description of our times may very well be “The Age of Anxiety”. There seems to be widespread worry about everything — from the food we eat to the way it is produced; the water we drink and the air we breathe; the plastics we use, the medications we take, and even the cosmetics we apply. Grappling with these issues requires an understanding and appropriate evaluation of the science that has led to these concerns.

Unfortunately, this is where the problem lies, as the vast majority of the population are devoid of scientific & technological understanding and even if they did, scientific jargons are not easily palatable.

It is therefore the responsibility of the Scientific community to unmask future challenges, create an awareness of the past by displaying scientific achievements, build scientific temperament, provide training & research opportunities to learn.

THE NEED:

Emphasis on STEM
(Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths)

Science & Technology is growing by leaps and bounds, with each passing day, proper use of technology holds a bright future for us. Enabling the youth from the childhood to acquire knowledge and apply it to solve the problems of society can lead to individual success and national wealth.

Studies confirm majority of future jobs will require strong foundation in science and technology & so the need for STEM education – a curriculum based on four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM education is a blended learning environment that show students how the scientific method can be applied to everyday life. It teaches students computational thinking and focuses on the real-world applications of problem solving.

Success in STEM subjects therefore is the building block for future accomplishments
