Have you set your mind on preparing for the Science/Technology question this year ?

If you have, then it is good for you to note that :

where Science questions are concerned, most of the questions revolve
around

(1) the aims of science
(2) the stakeholders and the limits they should exercise
(3) inquiry and research

such as the questions below :

To what extent is it acceptable for private companies to be involved in financing scientific research ? (2011)

How far should medical resources be used to prolong life ? (2011)

Can space research be justified nowadays ? (2011)

Science is unreliable, being based as much on theory as on fact. Is this a fair comment ? (2011)

Should every country have a right to carry out scientific research ? (2009)

Should research on expensive medical treatments be allowed when only a few can afford them ? (2007)

Medical science has been so successful that now people expect too much from it. Discuss. (2005)

How inventions and discoveries are used is not the concern of the scientist. Do you agree ? (2004)

Should medical science always seek to prolong life ? (2003)

Science and religion will always conflict. Discuss (2002)

So how about justifications for nuclear science ?

Or whether or not there should be limits on government control or intervention in scientific or medical efforts ?

As for Technology questions, the main concern seems to be its impact, as seen in the questions below :

To what extent has technology had a negative impact on the skills level of people ? (2010)

To what extent has technology had an impact on both privacy and security in your country ? (2009)

Air travel should be discouraged, not promoted. To what extent do you agree ? (2008)

Does modern technology always improve the quality of people’s lives ? (2006)

Does the modern world place too much reliance on technology ? (2003)

Air travel creates more problems than benefits. Is this a fair comment ? (2002)
