HOW DOES SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY MAKE THE

WORLD A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN?

SCIENCE – It is the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the


systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural
world through observation and experiment.

TECHNOLOGY – It is the application of scientific knowledge for practical


purposes, especially in industry.

Science and Technology has been of a great help to mankind, to make their
lives better. Technology provides us a better knowledge, faster ways of
locomotion and communication.

BETTER KNOWLEDGE – Computers have replaced books in the present


world. A lot can be learned over the internet. It helps in doing research of
information for projects quickly rather than going to the library. Nowadays even
the teachers promote learning over the internet.

FASTER WAYS OF LOCOMOTION – Nowadays, ways of locomotion such


as car, motorcycle, train and airplane that is the automobiles has facilitated our
lives as opposed to ships in the olden times which used to take a lot of time to
reach the destination along with risks to one’s life. The airplane, presently the
fastest means of travel is very comfortable and safe among the rest of the ways
of locomotion.

COMMUNICATION – When we talk about communication, the television, the


telephone, and the internet comes into our mind.

Their uses are essential to the society, and it has become much easier to
communicate by telephone than by mail used in the olden days. The mail which
was a slow means of communication has been replaced by a much faster means
now.

People can pay bills by the internet in a safe way, and phone familiars instantly.

Since the era of evolution in the nineteenth century, science has tremendously
improved the life of humans, providing comfort, safety, security, and
convenience. Many new inventions have emerged in the past half century
revolutionizing all aspects of life. Science has done wonders by improving
human life, making the world a better place for everyone. Before the emergence
of science, diseases like cholera and small pox threatened human existence,
however, with the breakthrough in medicine, most diseases can be controlled.
Communication, the television, the telephone, and the internet come into our
mind. Their uses are essential to the society, and it has become much easier to
communicate by telephone than by mail. Centuries ago, the mail was the main
way to communication between people, and it was really slow because it mostly
had to be shipped. Therefore, the use of the mail is no longer being used, and
the telephone and internet have taken place of the mail. People can pay bills by
the internet in a safe way, and phone familiars instantly. In other words, these
ways of communications are a lot faster than it was centuries ago, and it has
made our world a better place to live.

To conclude, that is why I strongly agree that technology has made the world a
better place to live. The computer, the automobile, the telephone, etc… have
surely been essentials to us and I think that the world has so many things yet to
be developed in order to help the society and make it good place to live.
