Title: Dealing with Waste: The Nuclear Debate
Url: http://resources.schoolscience.co.uk/nirex/nucdebate.html
Publisher: Industry Supports Education
Description: Developed by the Industry Supports Education initiative (ISE), this website allows teenagers to take part in an online debate about how to cope with nuclear waste and whether and how nuclear power should be used in the future. During the debate, the user has a discussion with a virtual devil's advocate (DA). Visitors can either take the role of being in favor of nuclear power or against nuclear power. After the DA makes a statement, the user selects a response that most closely matches his or her view. The website offers a questionnaire where individuals can determine how their current views compare with other teens. The questionnaire can also be used to see whether the individual's views have changed after the debate. This website educates people about the differing view points of nuclear energy and also provides a great example of how to debate.
