    It depends HOW you use it. (like ALL questions like this!)


    The science and techology lab is on the second floor.

    Science and technology are two subjects I know little about.

    Then which is correct; 'Science and technology is changing our way of living' or 'Science and technology are changing our way of living'?

    Still it depends on further context?

    I'd say both- it depends on whether you see them as a single thing or two distinct things.
