The fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are full of complex ethical questions about risk, responsibility, legality and lethality. It is vital that the UK’s emerging cohort of STEM students and young researchers consider ethics questions as part of their daily practice.
So, in 2020 Student/Young Pugwash (SYP) UK launched our ‘Project on Ethical Science’.
The project helps STEM students to engage in public debates on the social and ethical impacts of contemporary science and technology. We are developing a mutually-supportive, inclusive and diverse cohort of STEM students, young professionals and mentors, who have the knowledge and skills to positively influence their peers and society.
Mentoring ┃ Ask the Expert events ┃ Networking ┃ Multimedia content
Training and education ┃You name it – We’re bringing it to you!
We welcome expressions of interest in the project at any time. We would also love your ideas for the project’s content and on ways we can make the outputs work better for the UK STEM community.
