LLS 1309 - Controversies in Science and Technology

Credits: 3 hrs.
Should scientists clone human cells? Are there long-term health concerns associated with eating genetically modified foods? Is nuclear energy a safe and viable means of energy production? As science continues to push the boundaries of what was once thought possible, the line between what can be done and what should be done has become increasingly blurred. By exploring the details of current controversies, you will become better consumers of information and more informed decision makers, with the realization that conclusions reached today could result in unforeseen consequences in the future. In studying these controversial topics, you will be asked to read and critique articles from opposing sides. Through classroom discussions and debates, you will present the key points of each position and logically defend your own views.
