Student Parliament during 13th Lower Silesian Science Festival

On the 17th and 18th September 2010, during 13th edition of the Lower Silesian Science Festival (LSSF) the Student Parliament (SP), being a part of the international 2WAYS project, will be organized in Wroclaw. 64 pupils, students from 10 Wroclaw High Schools, were invited to take part in SP debates. The thematic focus of all Student Parliaments organized in 17 participating in 2WAYS countries is on issues concerning life sciences. Wroclaw pupils will discuss such controversial questions as: the use of embryonic stem cells, using results from genetic tests, whether genes trigger aggressive behavior, and diagnoses with the help of DNA analysis.

Then the pair should search for a current, peer-reviewed European research project about Life Sciences.
