Developing a Stance on Science Issues

Students would think about their own views on science issues in politics and develop a sense of their political identity.

I think a lot of times students, and the population in general, take a stance on issues depending on the political party their parents (or they) are affiliated with. With this project, students could really create an individualized point of view on many science issues in politics by doing their own research and keeping it completely free from outside opinion. No opinion based articles would be allowed, and students would have to use their own beliefs and knowledge to form political stances. I think this would be helpful in creating voters that would be more informed and less willing to be influenced by political bias.

Super cool idea! What do you anticipate the parents involvement would be in these projects? How do you create an unbiased space for students surrounded by adults? Coming from a very political family, I could never get through telling my parents about a project without them sharing (loudly) their opinions on the matter!
