Making the Connections: Science and Technology:Making the connections

Critical thinking... Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Definitely the chicken Definitely the egg It doesn't matter who was first, all that matters is you can’t have a chicken without an egg, and you can't have an egg without a chicken.

How is Science and Engineering a lot like the chicken and the egg? Scientists use the technologies that engineers create…And Engineers design new technologies using the knowledge from the natural world discovered by scientists.

Here is another way to look at it... Science: seeks to describe and understand the natural world and its physical propertiesEngineering: seeks solution for problems, needs, and wants Technology: anything made by humans to solve a problem or meet a need

Example: pH pH is a common measurement of water chemistry, but the california citrus industry depended on accurate pH measurements.Ripeness depends on citric acid levels Soil acidity and water play a big role as well So… they had an incentive for accurate measurements
