Citizen-Scientists as Agents of Change: Training the Trainer in the Ethics of Science and Technology
The Reilly Center has received an Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF award 1338652). This grant will allow them to provide training to 15 graduate students per year for three years beginning spring 2015.
A select group of fifteen students per year will have the opportunity for advanced training in the ethics of science and technology with a focus on “big picture” or “macro-ethics” issues. Their training starts with an intensive, one-week citizen-scientist ethics boot camp, and is reinforced for the remainder of the academic year with mandatory, follow-on, in-service projects.
