On Thursday, 4th of March, we had science class with Ms. DiPietro. As you might remember from the previous post, Ines has stated that we will have a debate today on the topic of:
“ Embryonic stem cell research could allow production of what the world currently lacks- organs, tissue and cells for transplants- that may provide progress in the battle against ailments that are difficult and currently impossible to cure, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s disease, Cancer and Multiple Sclerosis. Should use of stem cells be used worldwide?” an d "The cloning of "Dolly" the sheep -- thought impossible just 15 years ago -- has created a new branch of science. Should scientists be allowed to clone humans?"
So, on the beginning of the class, Ms. DiPietro has given us time to get ready and to set everything up for the debate. The side of pros included Hana, Aidan, Abigail, Emma and Severyn. Due to the votes, that were made after the debate finished, both teams won. The time passed by very fast due to the monopolization and "pushiness" of the debators. By the end of the class we could have concluded that the debate on the topic of embryonic stem cell was more rought than the debate on the topic of cloning.
Last, Ms. DiPietro published the homework on Moodle , which was to write a reflection on the debate we took this day. It is due Friday, 5th of March.Author: Severyn
