Scientific Ethics

Scientific Ethics

Type: CP    |    Level: HS

Scientific Ethics for High School Students uses case studies to stimulate classroom discussion about various topics, such as obtaining data, laboratory safety, computing ethics, and working with others. This book contains instructions for teachers on how and when to use these case studies, along with commentaries that discuss each topic. Ethics has been used by high school teachers since 1994 to provide a useful and enjoyable means to introduce students to ethical issues in scientific investigation. Though this publication does not deal explicitly with moral issues such as plagiarism and cheating, such issues could easily be made extensions of the discussions of ethics.
