We were asked this question in class today and I find it fascinating: Should our actions as scientists or engineers in the creation of our story be guided by our faith? I would like to hear what the Catholic Church teaches about this.

Catholic Church believes that Faith does not contradict science.
Guided by our faith does not mean if Science disagrees with Faith we should throw science away. It means that the ethical part of Science should be always guided by faith.
For example just because we have technology that finds out a Human fetus has some disability, we cannot use technology to murder that baby. You may also know that the theory of evolution in wrong hands gave rise to eugenics. Science cannot or does not have any explanation on why these are Good or Bad, Right or Wrong. Only Faith does.
