Vote for your favourite debate for Science Fight Club

Our first highlighted event for the upcoming Science Uncovered 2011 is Science Fight Club, where pairs of scientists will duke it out for your votes. Erica McAlister, Curator of Diptera at the Museum, and Richie Abel, Imperial College London, will be facing off against each other in the first round and you can read about the topic of that bout in Erica's blog post.


However, we want your help in deciding what else could be debated on the night. We have a few suggestions below, but let us know your favourite or suggest your own topic to help provoke intense debate on the night:


  1. Should specimens be permanently locked up or available for display?
  2. Should we still be collecting specimens?
  3. Is it ever justifiable for us to wipe out a species?
  4. Is it right to breed endangered animals in captivity?
  5. Should people keep pets?
  6. Which is more important to conserve: mammals or insects?
  7. Should we be trying to live longer?


Once you've posted your topic or placed your vote, visit this thread to let us know your own views.
