Democs is a series of resources produced by the new economics foundation (nef). Their aim is to promote discussion about contemporary issues. Materials contain teacher guidance and the information and structure that students need to develop ideas on difficult issues. They help students to gain confidence in their own ability to grapple with difficult subjects and to challenge the 'expert opinions' of others.
This collection of resources assist students to consider topics that include:
• Climate change
• Animal experimentation
• Vaccination policy
• Genetically modified food
• Stem cell research
• Medical ethics
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
