      History of Europe - History of Europe - Renaissance science and technology: According to medieval scientists, matter was composed of four elements—earth, air, fire, and water—whose combinations and permutations made up the world of visible objects. The cosmos was a series of concentric spheres in motion, the farther ones carrying the stars around in their daily courses. Abstract ( words) This study examined the scientific and technological literacy levels of a cohort of first year physics students at the University of Pretoria who experienced a traditional science school curriculum.

      surveys to measure the public’s attitudes toward science and general knowledge of science has grown since the s (Bauer et al., b).Table lists many of those surveys (Bauer and Falade, ; National Science Board, ).These surveys ask standard questions 1 to nationally and internationally representative adult samples, typically 1, interviews or more.   As such, this book contributes towards filling a gap in the literature and should be useful to anyone concerned about the current levels of technological literacy in society and who is looking for a framework that can help them to make an impact on improving the levels of technological literacy of young people.
