Science And Technology In National Development .

Science and technology is one of the areas where our modern world differs from the ancient people .science and technology which dovetail into each other are essential tools for rapid development in our present society .

But what is science ? Science is the systematic study of nature and its law under physics ,chemistry,biology and other semi science subjects.

Technology is the practical application of scientific knowledge of inventions to the solving of everyday problems .

Products of science and technology are everywhere been used in modern world .they include electricity ,automobiles,aircraft ,computers ,telephone,radio,television ,machinery for production of modern scientific medicals process for the treatment and diagnosis of diseases,infections or illnesses .

America ,France ,Germany ,Russia etc are developed or in fact industrialized ,because they have benefited from the fruits of science and technology ..

Africa ,Nigeria in particular are largely underdeveloped because ,science and technology are not being accorded their rightful place and priority in the scheme of things .science courses are under funded and even not utilized or underutilized and unappreciated .

If Nigeria wants to be developed in all facts of modern life ,we must give science ample attention .it  is a key to development.

  • I strongly believe all what you have said, science and technology are the major aspects that European countries depend on for their growth and development. And also if African countries will also focus on science and technology iam very sure that there will be a significant changes in their economy.

  • What happens in our country Nigeria is that we abuse the right of development been given to us. Other countries appreciate and maintain their technology but Nigerians use the science and technology invented to dupe and kill their fellow citizens. But we can do better with them in a rightfully manner.

  • The world has indeed gone far in development and one of the causative factors is science and technology which has brought about many helpful, stress reducing devices that make life easier. If Nigeria is able to effectively apply most of the gifts given by science and technology, i think we would grow even more as a nation

  • Nigeria has given that privilege and i will describe Nigeria as a developing country. From the past 6 -7 years i believe everyone can sense changes in this country both positively and negatively also i will say that NOT Nigeria as a whole are partaking in this development. Now the government are adviced to look out on other states in the country and impact this energy to make Nigeria as a whole a better place to be in

  • We still have a long way to go in Nigeria in the aspect of science and technology...because in my own opinion I think our Government are not helping matters at all. I think we need professionals in that sector not hiring base on connection.. if science and technology is improved in this country, it will also make life easier for us

  • Science and technology is all that makes things easier and faster for man. Without cars we would have to walk or ride horses all the way from Lagos to Abuja. Without Airplanes you would have to be on the high sea with a boat even a boat is technology. Science and technology is all about proffering solutions to the needs of Man.
