Science Video Programs Aims To Educate High School Students

Arthur Heller developed Science, Technology and Society, a seven-part series of fifteen-minute video programs that provide real-life examples of relationships between science, technology, and society. Produced through Access’s Edmonton facility, the series is aimed at senior high school students, although the topics covered are also of interest to more general audiences. Among the issues explored are how scientific knowledge develops, and the influence of society on scientific and technology research.
