Let's Talk Stem Cells

This activity provides teachers with a resource which supports (i) an understanding of stem cells, (ii) how they can be used therapeutically, and (iii) a discussion activity which raises some of the issues relating to stem cells. In the Scottish Curriculum, the resource supports CfE level 4 science outcomes and the stem cell outcomes from National 4 and 5 Biology.

This resource also helps teachers encourage young people to:

  • make informed personal decisions and choices<
  • express opinions and show respect for others' views
  • develop informed social, moral and ethical views of scientific, economic and environmental issues
  • discuss and debate scientific ideas and issues.
