Science and Technology Education and Future Human Needs is a collection of papers that tackle concerns in the education of future scientists, particularly concerns in identifying techniques and resource material. The title first covers the impact of science on society, and then proceeds to tackling the relevance of science. Next, the selection talks about the revision of science curricula. Chapter 4 deals with science education and the needs of developing countries, while Chapter 5 talks about problems in implementation. The sixth chapter covers the balance between technology and environment in development, and the seventh chapter tackles the nutritional concerns in national development. In the last chapter, the text talks about addressing human needs first before developing science and technology. The book will be of great interest to individuals concerned with the progress of science and technology.
