598Challenges for Bioethics from Asia

In the same vein, the Biology faculty of the Ateneo de Manila High School, “inspired and guided by the philosophy behind Jesuit education,” embrace and implement the Bioethics education project as a means to:

relate scientific knowledge with the students’ ability to reason;

address students’ concerns about ethical or social impacts of biotechnology;

present a balanced picture of risks and benefits of alternative technologies; and

develop more informed debate (Macer, 2003).

In Table 1 are the details of the participation of the Biology teachers in the Ateneo de Manila High School.
