STS(Science Technology in Society) emphasizes interaction between science and technology, impact of scientific and technological advancement on a society, and vice versa. Application of STS approach at school can have quite a few benefits. For example, by introducing social issues in science education, teachers can give a more comprehensive and larger picture of the scientific system for the students. Social issues usually have interdisciplinary elements, and form a complex system. Further, STS can reveal real-life aspect of science, as it addresses scientific facts and technologies that have a direct bearing upon the society.
