Week One Discussion:  Science and Society and Technology
Read Chapters 21 and 22, listen to the lectures, look at the power points, and post an original reply to both of the following questions.  Post early in the week and reply to at least one classmate’s post with thoughtful details.   **Each weekly discussion is worth 20 points.
