I am a member of the Young Scientists of Canada (an affiliate of the Youth Science Foundation). I have a school assignment on Science and Society. I’ve decided to choose a scientist’s point of view on the arms race and SDI as an example.

It would be tragic to blame man’s catastrophic deeds on science. Using science in a moderate way to eliminate nuclear weapons and achieve international peace are some things that I would like to see. There are a lot of unfulfilled promises that science can bring to the world as a whole because no racial barriers exist for scientists.

Any suggestions on how to implement science and society into the classroom, as well as any information on how science can be put to peaceful uses in terms of SDI would be appreciated.
