Science, Technology, and Society (STS) is an essential course in the General Education curriculum for tertiary education. It was conceptualized to develop deep appreciation and critical understanding of the role of science and technology in the development of people and the society. It deals with the interactions between science and technology in social, cultural, political, and economic contexts. It is an interdisciplinary course whereby students are engaged in learning myriad of scientific issues and technological developments.

This book is designed to guide undergraduate students to develop critical thinking and creativity as they utilize science in understanding various human conditions and social issues, explore the role of science and technology in nation building, analyze scientific ideas, theories, innovations, research, and practices, and discover technological advancements brought by science to the society.

This book has three major parts. The first chapter includes analysis of the concepts, theories, principles, historical events in science and its development in various civilizations, and the role of science in nation building with emphasis on government programs and projects for the advancement of science and technological capability of the country. It also presents the historical development of science in the Philippines.

The second chapter is a discussion of science and human conditions that introduces different philosophies, ideas, policies, and personalities in the field of science and technology. The third chapter deals with various issues in the society related to science and technology. Some of these issues are climate change, impact of the information age, nanotechnology, and genetically modified organisms.

In this book, the students are expected to broaden their theoretical and practical understanding of STS as a course and as a field of study. Each lesson contains important information, activities, and guide questions that will help students in learning STS. This book leads the students to acknowledge that science and the society are inseparable. The development of scientific ideas draws inspiration from the physical and natural world, and the society is always a recipient of the positive benefits of science and technology.

Science, Technology, and Society was written with an intense passion and a deep sense of mission to contribute to the intellectual development of Filipino college students.
