In the epistemological of science, they view scientific models as original objects and there are many ways to calcify. In the internal sociology of science, scientific decisions based on previous theories and technological decisions based on their impact on society. For the external sociology of science, pre-sevice teachers- being in agreement with science-technology-society affect each other and are affected by each other. In general, the results also revealed that a vast majority of them have has merit views. The results will be used as a basis for developing VNOST-oriented chemistry teacher education.
