1 SMT 310: Science and Technology SMT 310: Science and Technology Objectives: This class is a capstone to lower division general education in the sciences. It provides additional knowledge in science and technology It shows how to study science and technology. In this class, we will follow the time-line presented by Burke in his book “Connections” to study several discoveries and inventions together with the events that led to them. For instance, we will talk about eight important inventions that will probably matter the most in the future: telecommunications, atomic bomb, the computer, the production line, the computer, the production line, jet engine, plastics, rocketry, and television. Discoveries and inventions do not usually happen as isolated events, on the contrary, they are usually the result of an entire process. An invention or discovery often comes as a response to a particular problem or need. Some other times, it is the unintended result of trying to reach a different objective. We will provide examples of the different paths leading to an invention or discovery as well as the effects the have on our society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
