MO.8. Impact of Science, Technology and Human Activity
8.1. The nature of technology can advance, and is advanced by, science as it seeks to apply scientific knowledge in ways that meet human needs
8.1.A. Designed objects are used to do things better or more easily and to do some things that could not otherwise be done at all
8.1.A.a. Scope and Sequence - All Units: Explain how technological improvements, such as those developed for use in space exploration, the military, or medicine, have led to the invention of new products that may improve lives here on Earth (e.g., new materials, freeze-dried foods, infrared goggles, Velcro, satellite imagery, robotics, lasers))
8.1.B. Advances in technology often result in improved data collection and an increase in scientific information
8.1.B.a. Scope and Sequence - All Units: Identify the link between technological developments and the scientific discoveries made possible through their development (e.g., Hubble telescope and stellar evolution, composition and structure of the universe; the electron microscope and cell organelles; sonar and the composition of the Earth; manned and unmanned space missions and space exploration; Doppler radar and weather conditions; MRI and CAT-scans and brain activity))
8.2. Historical and cultural perspectives of scientific explanations help to improve understanding of the nature of science and how science knowledge and technology evolve over time
8.2.B. Scientific theories are developed based on the body of knowledge that exists at any particular time and must be rigorously questioned and tested for validity
8.2.B.a. Scope and Sequence - All Units: Describe the difficulty science innovators experience as they attempt to break through accepted ideas (hypotheses, laws, theories) of their time to reach conclusions that may lead to changes in those ideas and serve to advance scientific understanding (e.g., Darwin, Copernicus, Newton
