Importance of Science and Technology in Our Daily Life
One cannot expect their life without science and technology revolving around them. Science and technology are extremely important in our daily life because they made our life simpler, faster and more secure.
While science is the study of physical and the natural world, technology is the application arising from science. Hence we will need both of them in our life.
Almost everything that we see around us is the gift of science and technology. Think of a day you woke up in the morning brushing your teeth with a toothbrush made up of nylon, you gargle with a mouthwash, the mouthwash container is also made up of plastic, then you open the door of your bathroom which is likely to be made up of plastic rather than made up of wood or glass. The clothes you wear also contains some synthetic materials made up of polymers.
Let us glance through the importance of science & technology:
Education: Science and technology have made a remarkable contribution in the field of education. Technology has made education itself easier. It has provided us options like smart classes, ebooks, etc.
Internet: One of the best gifts science has given us is the internet, via the internet, we can stay connected to our family and friends. We can study whatever we want. Tough topics like calculus, Redox Reaction, laws of motion have become easier to understand with the help of videos and study materials available over the internet.
A Better Life: The invention of machines like X-Ray, ECG, blood sugar tester has made our life a lot easier, previously where we used to visit a doctor or a chemist for a blood sugar test, but now we can test our blood sugar at any time and at any moment.
Electrical appliances like micro oven, toaster, grinder, refrigerator have made our life more comfortable, we can cook food at a very short span and we can also save food from getting wasted by refrigerating it.
Appliances like Fan, Air Conditioners saves us during the hot summer days, Television, Video Games help us to entertain ourselves.
Mobile Phones: Invention of mobile phones took place in the year of 1973 and since then it has gone through a lot of changes. Previous phones were only used to call and send messages but now one can use a mobile phone to do a lot other things like ordering food, booking cabs, booking hotels and purchasing a railway ticket.
Now one can also study by using mobile phones in which they have to download an educational application from the app store and they can start learning from there. The use of animations and videos help students to understand the concepts more clearly than reading the same from a textbook.
