Articles examine the relationship between science and technology, providing insight into the many ways in which science affects daily life. Understanding the interconnectedness of the different and varied branches of science and technology is important for anyone preparing for a career or endeavor in science or technology. To that end, essays look beyond basic principles to examine a wide range of topics, including industrial and business applications, historical and social contexts, and the impact a particular field of science or technology will have on future jobs and careers. Especially targeted toward high-school students, this excellent reference work is edited to tie into the high-school curriculum, making the content readily accessible as well to patrons of public, academic, and university libraries\"--Publisher description.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/9989408669<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic reference sources<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9989408669#Series\/salem_science<\/a>> ; # Salem science<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/777601636<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Applied science<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"794277264<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/794277264#PublicationEvent\/ipswich_mass_salem_press_2012<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9989408669#Agent\/salem_press<\/a>> ; # Salem Press<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=450295<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=3400571<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/science.salempress.com\/doi\/book\/10.3331\/Appl<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781587657887<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/794277264<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
