During the past two years, as I have worked with the University of Iowa's Chautauqua program, I have become concerned that relatively few science teachers have begun to incorporate Science/fechnology/Society (STS) materials into their existing curriculum. Lack of a concrete definition of Science/fechnology/Society has often served to frustrate teachers and disinterest them in using the concept even though they have already used many of the ideas in their teaching. A little creativity can often overcome a lack of "cook-book" rules in setting up an STS project and can produce a very rewarding experience in science education. Much has been written on the subject of STS curriculum and this in itself should provide many ideas.
