Views on Genetic Engineering via "The Hunger Games"

Unit 6: DNA and Detectives: Applications of Genetic Testing
Lesson 7 of 7

Objective: Students will (1) discuss the definition of genetically modified organisms, (2) learn about the risks and benefits of research on G.M.O.’s, (3) explore the growing do-it-yourself biology movement, and (4) develop proposals seeking to either restrict or permit research into genetically modifying the avian flu virus.

Big Idea: A growing "Do-It-Yourself" movement - in which anyone can acquire the basic tools of biotechnology and potentially engineer new organisms of their own - is causing concern among citizen scientists and trained scientists alike.
