This paper addresses how science and technology education could be connected in the context of health education, a cross-curricular theme. The theme of health is so inextricably linked to science and technology that it could bring into a sharper focus the relationship between science and technology. The central thesis is that the pursuit of health should be one of the common goals of science and technology education, hence health education could serve as a bridge for the two. In putting the “Science, Technology and Health” approach into practice, the school curriculum has to be modified to provide students with a more contextualized and integrated learning experience in science and technology on themes of health.
