- Science, Ethics and Animals
Does a horse have more or less value than a worm or tiger? Does a pet rat have more value than one used for research and testing? Does it matter how our food is produced, as long as it is cheap? These are some of the questions raised by the RSPCA’s new interactive online resource for GCSE science students and teachers at www.science-ethics-animals.org.uk.
With activities to use in both English and Welsh, the website has been designed to support the science curriculum for 14 to 16 year-olds and is guaranteed to get anyone thinking about the way we interact with, value and use animals in our daily lives.
