[Speech] Science and Technology

         A very pleasant morning to our English teacher Pn. Lee and my fellow classmates. Today, I would like to give a speech. The topic of my speech is “The Importance of Science and Technology in Our Lives”. Today, our lives are better than in the past. Do you know why? It is because of the science and technology. Nowadays, we have scientists, inventors, engineers and others in the world. They have made great contributions in our lives.

         What are Science and technology? Science is the systematic study of nature for the purpose of understanding how it affects our lives and the environment while technology makes our lives easier and more comfortable. Science is important in our daily lives. The food we eat, the instruments we use for communication and the transport we take to move place to place are all related to science.

          Moreover, technology has improved our lives. We use technology in transportation, communication, agriculture and industry. The advantage of using machines is machines can do our hard work without human. For example, tractors and harvesters enable farmers to save their time and speed up the harvest of crops. Besides, the invention of washing machine also help us to wash the clothes without human energy and save the time too.

         Furthermore, the invention of vehicles is also good to our lives. Transportation today is faster, more comfortable and convenient than in the past. For example, aeroplanes help us to travel around the world in a few hours. Advancement in science makes the cars and motorcycles more powerful, faster and safer. Besides that, the invention of commuter trains and light rail transit can reduce the number of vehicles on the road and protect the environment from air pollution. Thus, it also helps to reduce the number of traffic jams.

          On the other hand, the invention of communication tools such as telephones, facsimiles, mobile phones, televisions and computers help us to communicate with other people easier. The launching of communication satellites makes long distance communication possible. Nowadays, telephones and computers also help us to transfer money, pay bills and check our bank account balance through internet. The advancement of technology like internet helps us to communicate with our family and friends by using a program call Windows Live Messenger(MSN). It can strengthen the relationship with each other. Internet also helps us to solve problems. The pupils today surf internet to do their homework or project. This helps pupils to learn more knowledge.

            Now, I would like to talk about the advancement in medicine. Today, the technology of medical field is more modern than past. Medicine conquered many diseases such as small pox, tuberculosis and polio. Medicine is also related to science and technology. Without science and technology, we cannot be treated. Therefore, it is so important to us. The modern equipment like X-ray machines enable doctors o perform accurate diagnoses and detect diseases early. These inventions help to save many lives and cure cancers or other diseases more quickly. It makes our lives more progressive in the future.

             Likewise, scientists can also help to find new discoveries and let the people live more comfortably and conveniently. For example, the astronaut will go to the space and find some new discoveries.

             In a nutshell, there is no doubt that technology is vital for our daily lives. We must treasure the technology which was invented. We must grateful to the people who invented the new technology. Their efforts and creativities are indeed contributions to the state of art society. We must look forward and strive every nerve to build our future with confidence. Thank you for all who listening my speech. Thank you.
