Science is related in many ways to the economies of all developed nations, including Canada, and plays a major role in public and private decisions in many areas of society.
Science can therefore not be viewed as merely a matter of “facts”; rather, it is a subject in which students learn to weigh the complex combinations of fact and value that developments in science and technology have given rise to in modern society.
The content of the secondary science program also builds on the five strands present in the elementary curriculum, although less emphasis is placed on technological education, which is a distinct discipline at the secondary level.

The close relationship between science and technology, and between the two elements together and economic and social development is an accepted fact.
Investment in science and technology ought to be as much a concerted attempt to encourage the development of large indigenous high technology industries as it is an attempt to attract in existing industries from outside.
Science and technology and research and development are the life blood of the new approach which we must have towards industry.

 African-American Baseline Essays - Afrocentrism and Pseudoscience (Skeptical Inquirer Fall 1991)
In 1987, the Portland, Oregon, school district published the African-American Baseline Essays, a set of six essays to be read by all teachers and whose contents are to be infused into the teaching of various subjects in all grades.
The Science Baseline Essay also states that the ancient Egyptians were "famous as masters of psi, precognition, psychokinesis, remote viewing and other undeveloped human capabilities." It argues that there is a distinction between magic, which is not scientific, and "psychoenergetics," which is, but gives no basis to distinguish one from the other.
Science also involves others, such as justice, equality, and avoidance of harm to others, in evaluating the consequences of research.

 Peripheral Science, Simon Schwartzman, 1987
In her introductory chapter to Ciencia Academica, she attempts to combine the European and American traditions for the social studies of science with the standard "dependencia theory" that became mandatory in the Venezuelan social sciences after the Renovación.
Thus, she accepts the view that science in developing countries is transferred from the developed ones as a deliberate movement to incorporate them as their cultural (as well as economic and political) appendix.
For them, science, technology and higher education are more or less the same thing, to be explained by the growth of capitalism and its vagaries in less developed regions.

 Science Fiction by Women Authors
Sargent's informative introduction, in which she discusses the intractability of the science fiction definition and the difficulty women have had gaining status as bona fide science fiction writers, provides a context that enhances the reading of this intriguing collection.
At the core of both feminism and science fiction is a questioning of why things are as they are and how they might be different.
Science fiction, with more women writing it, had a chance to become what it had claimed to be all along-a literature that embraces new possibilities.

Moffett is an accomplished mainstream poet, critic, and translator, whose first science fiction story, "Surviving," won a well-deserved spot on the 1986 Nebula ballot.
Moffett is not "dabbling" in sf, however; she handles all the genre techniques with skill, and with great respect for her material and her audience; she deals with ideas with intelligence and passion.
Moffett is plainly one of those rare souls whose empathy and compassion transcend all human boundaries; neither she nor her best-loved characters are truly alien anywhere.

 Fantasy & Science Fiction - May 1987 - Books to Look For
It is science fiction, set on a world settled by human beings many centuries before; and beneath the True Game is a contest even deeper, between the native inhabitants of the planet and the human interlopers.
There are flaws ranging from the trivial -- her characters throw up a bit too often -- to the substantial -- the structure of the series is awkward, with the second trilogy (Mavin's books) being a flashback from the first (Peter's books).
Birana is exiled from the peaceful, high-tech city of women for her mother's crime; Arvil is the man assigned by the "gods" to murder her.

Integration of science across the curriculum with occasions for learning about the interrelationship of science with other disciplines and with society.
Consideration of the contribution of science to personal, social, and career interest.
Rather than treating the science curriculum as a set of facts, concepts, or theories that students must master, a conceptual-change view of learning implies that the curriculum consists of a few major conceptual changes that students must undergo, accompanied by a great deal of "filling in the details."
