This seminar will explore the science behind stem cells as well as ethical implications of embryonic stem cell research. Teachers will be provided with an overview of the popular resource on stem cell science and ethics geared towards secondary science classrooms, developed by the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR). The unit begins with a laboratory examination of planaria as a model organism for understanding stem cell biology. It provides engaging activities that highlight early embryonic development and compare and contrast different types of stem cells. Additional activities focus on the bioethical dimensions of stem cell research, including the variety of positions held by different stakeholders in the stem cell debate. A Socratic Seminar allows students to discuss the role of public funding for stem cell research. The culminating assessment provides an opportunity for students to either prepare a letter to the President’s Bioethics Commission or propose a grant to fund research for a specific disease or disorder.

Archive: The Science and Ethics of Animal Research, June 1, 2011
Grade Level: College, High School, Informal Education
Why do scientists use animals in research? Few topics elicit such a strong reaction as that of animal research, and many teachers are hesitant to engage in the subject. Yet every vaccine, breast cancer treatment, heart surgery technique, and prescription drug developed has used animal models and subjects. How do ethical considerations influence the use of animals? What does the history of animal research tell us about current views and policies? Furthermore,...  [view full summary]
Why do scientists use animals in research? Few topics elicit such a strong reaction as that of animal research, and many teachers are hesitant to engage in the subject. Yet every vaccine, breast cancer treatment, heart surgery technique, and prescription drug developed has used animal models and subjects. How do ethical considerations influence the use of animals? What does the history of animal research tell us about current views and policies? Furthermore, how can we discuss this topic in a respectful manner? In this seminar, we will explore new curriculum from the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR), in which students learn how animal research is conducted, the numbers and types of animals used, alternatives to animal research, rules and regulations involved, and the bioethical frameworks used by those in support of, and in opposition to, this research.
