"Should We Engineer the Mosquito?" Forum

Science educators in both classroom and informal settings may be interested in this resource from the National Informal STEM Education (NISE) Network (featured in the 6-24-2016 Scout Report). This particular resource is designed as a public forum that "encourages in-depth discussion about ways mosquitoes could be engineered to reduce malaria transmission." All the information needed for this forum discussion is included, such as how to plan and host a public forum and instructions for discussion groups, as well as promotional fliers and supplemental handouts. The forum's estimated duration is approximately 90 minutes, and its suggested audiences are people ages 15 and up, as well as scientists and informal science educators. Those interested can choose to download the materials for this forum as individual files, or all at once as a zip file, and a link to an 11-minute training video is also provided. This forum is part of a larger NISE Network project entitled Building with Biology, which was "developed to create conversations among publics and scientists about synthetic biology" with support by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
