The Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions invites faculty, staff and interested graduate students to participate as a judge or moderator in the Boeing Scholars Academy Ethics Bowl on Monday, July 7, 2014 from 2-5 p.m. on the Main Campus.
The IIT Boeing Scholars Academy brings 100 high-achieving Chicago
area high school students together for a four-week, thematic program
that introduces them to diverse science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics (STEM) career fields and involves the students in searching
for solutions to pressing world problems with both significant
technological and ethical aspects.
The Ethics Bowl competition on July 7 will challenge the students to
take what they have learned during the first weeks of the program a step
further, asking them to work as a group to analyze and discuss a series
of ethics cases concerning world problems such as issues surrounding
emerging technologies, the environment, disease prevention, crime, and
issues related to the current economy and job creation.
There will be a 45 minute training session for judges and moderators
at 2 pm after which there will be one round of ethics bowl. The deadline
to volunteer is June 30, 2014.
If you have questions or are interested in being a part of the competition, email Kelly Laas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
