今天解析Test 4的Part 3：
How interested are most people in your country in science?
Actually, we could divide the people into two groups:
1. drastically interested in science – balance equations and solve for unknowns in chemistry – doing all the tests on a mysterious substances is so like a puzzle – it’s fun to reach the correct conclusion
2. not a science-centered person – lost the confidence in school life – low grade and complicated system
Why do you think children today might be better at science than their parents?
Reason 1. higher teaching quality at schools: introduced some principles behind everyday phenomenon (ex. why we see the lightning before hearing the thunder) – arouse students’ interest in science;
Reason 2. more completed facilities and equipment: most of the science classes involve experiments and field trips – have more chances to operate various equipment and add a range of ingredients to create miracles
How do you suggest the public can learn more about scientific developments?
The best way to learn: do voluntary works in scientific field – to understand how scientific developments help people (ex. work in the hospital – see the medical ways to cure cancer – how to release the pain for patients – recognize the significance of finding the effective ways to cure cancer) – an important part of learning is understanding
What do you think are the most important scientific discoveries in the last 100 years?
List the scientific discoveries (at least 2 of them)
1. the first quartz clock was developed – more accurate – the regular vibration that occurs when an electric current is run through the mineral quartz – people began to rely on them to run businesses, transportations, and markets;
2. a home robot – Roomba – a turtle-shaped robot that slowly vacuums its way around the room – sense the walls and turn to avoid stairs and objects on the floor
Do you agree or disagree that there are no more major scientific discoveries left to make?
Reason 1: Roberts will play a more important role in the future – explore the ocean // analyze the surface of distant planets – deficient resource is a big issue for us;
Reason 2: high demand on job searching – the field of technology is always attractive – more challenges confronted by scientific workers – strong pursuit of achievement in scientific discoveries
Who should pay for scientific research – governments or private companies?
Large amount of profit could cover the cost – government should pay more money on free healthcare – those who are living under the poverty line and suffering from the various diseases, they might even fail to afford a small proportion of their medical care expenses
