Grade 9 Science: Reproductive Technology and the Environment
Prepare and carry out an action plan to educate about an aspect of reproductive technology. Students will individually investigate an area involving the environmental impact of reproductive technologies (e.g., biotechnology in agriculture to increase food production). Students must present an argument for or against a particular technology and defend the position with concrete scientific evidence. Action plan involves creating a product such as a commercial (script and videotape), designing a pamphlet, writing a letter to a company or MP, or creating a magazine.
