Genetics and Ethics Class Discussion Activity

            This quick activity will prompt discussions about the ethics of genetic engineering. As future scientists, the students must learn to think critically and consider both their understanding of scientific issues and their personal beliefs. By providing support for and against the morality of genetic engineering, the students will be challenged to consider the wavering opinions of society and how these different perspectives will affect the progression of applicable science.

            This healthy debate allows young minds to form personal opinions in a class which often demands much memorization and understanding. When students become passionate about a subject it easily sticks in their minds; this conversation will not only provoke individual growth, but it will also provide a personal study of DNA technology.
