Abstract

This chapter considers:

• the distinction between scientific knowledge (knowledge usually gained through studying science) and technological knowledge (knowledge usually gained through studying technology);

• the relationship between science and technology using examples from history. When knowledge transfer has been important and when it has not;

• the common ground between science and technology;

• Designing and Problem Solving as key areas of knowledge used and learnt in technology which have wider application, and technology as a lead subject for learning ‘affective’ knowledge;

• Systems thinking both in science and in technology, and ‘black boxes’ - designing electronic systems as a technological process.
