Welcome to our presentation!


CHAPTER 10 - The Nano World
LEARNING OUTCOMES

First
define the major potential and realized impacts of nanotechnology on society;

Second
analyze nanotechnology through the conceptual STS lenses; and

Third
examine the costs and benefits to society of nanotechnology.

CHAPTER 10

WHY NANO?
The term “nano” refers to a unit meaning one billionth or ten raised to negative nine. For example, a
nanometer is one billionth of a meter. Hence, “nano” expresses a very tiny amount of size.

CHAPTER 10 - The Nano World

Figure 3.9 Human hair compared to


particles

Figure 3.8 Nanoscale

Nanotechnology - is the manipulation of matter on an atomic or subatomic scale. In the


future, as nanoscience and nanotechnology progress, more breakthroughs are expected
to arise in the different fields of science...
4
CHAPTER 11 - Gene Therapy
LEARNING OUTCOMES

Third explore the opportunities that


may be opened by gene therapy
in the future.

Second discuss the prevalence of gene


therapy in daily life; and

First describe gene therapy and its various


forms;

Aspirin Molecule
Medicine is one example of a scientific and
technological innovation that made a
breakthrough in the area of human health. The
aspirin was already an “old” technology at the
beginning of the 21st century.

What we should know about stem cell treatment in


PH (Article by Totel de Jesus)

“Be careful, Number one, stem-cell therapy is not a 'cure-all'


(medical procedure)... “The goal of stem-cell therapy is not
longetivity - anti - aging program . Stem cell therapy is actually
trying to allow the body to heal itself.”

Climate Change
CHAPTER 12

Learning Outcomes
At the end of the chapter, the students should be able
to:

First
explain how climate change happens;

Second
provide pieces of evidence to affirm the presence of
climate change; and

Third
discuss the implications of climate change.

8
What is Climate
Change?
Climate is not similar to weather which is constantly
changing. Climate refers to the long-term weather patterns
prevailing over a given area of the planet. The term comes
from a Greek word klinein meaning “to slope.” It evolved
into klima connoting a zone or region of the earth...
EARTH'S MOVEMENT AROUND THE SUN

The elements in this interaction betweem the sun


and the Earth are defined as follows:

1. Aphelion - point in the orbit of the Earth farthest


from the sun.
2. Perihelion - point in the orbit of the Earth closest
to the sun.
3. Earth's Axis tilt - inclination angle of the Earth's
rotational axis in relation to a line perpendicular to its
orbital plane.
4. Precession - change of the orientation of the
rotational axis of the Earth.
5. Equinox - the time of the sun at noon directly over
the equator.
6. Solstice - when the sun at noon sits above the
Tropic of Cancer/Capricorn.
7. Precession of the equinoxes - motion of the
equinoxes relative to the precession of the Earth's
axis of rotation.

Chapter 12 - Climate Change

Milankovitch Parameters
The Milankovitch or astronomical theory of climate
change is an explanation for changes in the seasons
which result from the changes in the earth's orbit
around the sun.
In summary, Milankovitch studied whether or not the
direct amount of sunlight falling on Earth was the
cause of the Ice Age. He reasoned that over
thousands of years, the relative position of the Earth
and the sun changes, causing variations in the solar
Milutin Milankovitch radiation reaching the Earth over thousands of years.

11
Global
Warming
The phenomenon of increasing average air
temperatures near the surface of Earth over
the past one to two centuries. (Selin & Mann,
n.d)
Two opposing arguments whether or not global
warming is just natural.
1.) Nature simply acting according to its laws
w/ no reference to human beings...
2.) Global Warming is caused
by the actions of human being...
12
Greenhouse Gases
Chapter 12 - Climate Change

It refers to how certain gases in the


atmosphere trap the heat of the sun.

FUTURE ACTIONS
If we want to industrialize but at the same time protect the environment, then a balanced plan must be
created. Science has given the humanity a tool for modernization. It allows for the emergence of
technology that spreads and applies knowledge for the attainment of good life. It must be realized that
science is more like a cookbook than a blueprint. It is open for experimentation, innovation, and
refinement. So like any good chef,reading it requires a fine sense of taste.
That's a wrap!
