Engaging School Pupils with The Triple Helix Science in Society Conference

On 5th April, a group of school pupils gathered in Cambridge to attend The Triple Helix Science in Society Conference. The event was also attended by a group of 5 pupils and 2 teachers from The Harker School, who host the first Triple Helix High School Chapter. The day began with a panel of expert speakers debating the question “To what extent should we allow manipulations to the human body?”. This was followed by a poster session and debating workshop, allowing the pupils to share and discuss their views on a range of science in society issues. I have had some fantastic feedback about the day from both teachers and pupils, and I myself was very impressed by the quality of the pupils’ posters and their debating skills.
