 en ISSUES IN BIOTECHNOLOGY TEACHING - "Comics" as a tool for teaching biotechnology in primary schools
Rota, Gladis & Izquierdo, Juan

Abstract

More and more, the biotechnology will be important in everybody's life. People will have to be informed and educated on this subject in order to take more conscious and informed choices. Formal and informal education and information programs in biotechnology are already a pressing need to serve a high variable number of beneficiaries as farmers associations, the agribusiness sector, governmental and non-governmental institutions, consumers and the general public, the media, policy makers, non-biotechnology academics, religious organizations and students, including primary schools children. Within this context and as a key element, the children - who will make the decisions and choose the technologies to be used in the future - has to be prioritized in any program of biotechnology education.
