Three main future trends in S& T education:
1. Relationships/ interdependence of science, technology and society (STS) will be the organizational core of the curriculum vs logical progression or the structure of the discipline or as a pure science/established knowledge approach.
2. Science and technological education for human, social and nature survival (eg population growth, air quality,health and disease, water resources, energy shortages, nuclear wastes, pollution, etc ).
3. S&T education for human capital development, economic growth and providing vocational and technological skills/occupations in industrial, post- industrial era and in a global world/ information age.
