Students Debate the Gay Gene

Here is an interesting classroom debate on the gay gene. I think it is an interesting idea to have kids debate controversial issues using a scientific perspective. It is interesting that the opposing side does not use a lot of scientific evidence, and there are a lot of statements in the debate that seem to be started with “I believe that…”

I do think that a better science education can lead to a better society, socially and otherwise. Debating using reason and trying to go beyond the beliefs we are surrounded by can go a long way.

This was first seen on Ms. Geshke’s Science Hub. For more information, and the second debate video, please click here.
