For this module’s discussion, you will explore how science and technology influence areas of popular culture and how popular culture also impacts the development of new technologies and scientific innovations.
Each discussion is meant to be a collaborative space for conversation in which to process the concepts within the course. To ensure an interesting and respectful discussion, you are encouraged to think creatively about your initial posts and build upon the points made by your peers. Discussing challenges that face our world often means investigating opinions and ideas different from your own. Remember to remain thoughtful and respectful towards your peers and instructor in your discussion post and replies. It is also important to review the module resources and read the prompts in their entirety before participating in the discussion.
Create one initial post and follow up with at least two response posts.
For your initial post, address the following:
- Select a recent example of media that addresses science and/or technology.
- How is your understanding of the natural and applied sciences enhanced by the ways your chosen media example addresses science and technology?
- Describe the feedback loop that exists between science and technology and your chosen media example. How do science and technology influence your media example? How might your media example affect science and technology?
