Bionic Trees

Students examine the debate about using trees to clean up the environment by reading and discussing a news article. They research the various contexts for which scientists may want to genetically alter trees and assess the validity of altering trees as a method of decreasing pollution. Students write persuasive letters to their congressional representatives supporting or refuting research.
