Science and Technology Concepts in a Design and Technology Project: A Pilot Study
Research in Science & Technological Education Volume 15, Number 2, ISSN 0263-5143
This pilot study of a project involving the design and making of a moisture sensor indicated that science knowledge developed through science lessons could not be used in technology lessons. This is argued to be because knowledge is constructed in the various contexts and hence not generalizable. Implications for science and technology teaching are explored. (Author/DKM)
