Abstract [en]

 The rapid development of science and technology has become a global issue in modern society, since it will not only bring conveniences into peoples lives but it may also cause extensive environmental damage to the planet earth. Therefore, it is important to propagate the notion of Science Technology and Society (STS) and the awareness of sustainable development. The purpose of this study was to implement a Science across the World (SAW) activity in a resource-based environment regarding two sustainable issues, global warming and renewable energy, and to investigate students responses to this SAW activity. Seventy-eight non-science major freshmen participated in the study. The results from participants questionnaires indicated that students felt most interested in exploring ideas locally via Internet, and exchanging information with students from other countries globally. Through this activity, students also presented the positive results of the acquisition of knowledge, and they felt that their inquiry abilities got improved. Implication of STS teaching on students learning and attitudes are discussed. KEY WORDS: Resource-based learning, science across the world, STS, sustainable development.
