LO 2

Technological Knowlede and Understanding

The learner will be able to understand and apply relevant technological knowledge ethically and responsibly.

We know this when the learner:

structures:

  • demonstrates knowledge and understanding of how materials can be processed to change or improve properties (e.g. strength, fire resistance, waterproofing, taste, volume, texture).

LO 3

Technology, Society and the Environment

The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships between science, technology, society and the environment.

We know this when the learner:

Indigenous Technology and Culture:

3.1 recognises how products and technologies have been adapted from other times and cultures.

Impact of Technology:

3.2 suggests ways to improve technological products or processes to minimise negative effects on people and/or the health of the environment.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
