The interactive lecture was developed so that the university students may think about the relation between the science and the society. About 150 university students discussed, and expressed their own opinions about themes of genetically modified organism, a global environment, an up-to-date science technology, and bioethics, etc. It is important how science course students get social literacy and how researchers explain their research to the society. However, such a lecture was few up to now. Through this class, we can provide valuable chances to think about advantage/disadvantage of cutting-edge science.
