Participating schools will receive cases and study questions in advance of the competition. Teams and their coaches are encouraged to spend time reviewing the cases, considering possible questions, positions, supporting arguments, and developing analyses of the cases. Topics may include the following:
Participating in the Science and Technology Ethics Bowl helps develop students' intellectual abilities and capacities, deepens their ethical understanding, and reinforces their sense of ethical commitment. Prizes will be awarded to the teams that demonstrate the keenest philosophical acumen.
