Philosophy and Ethics Students working with Warwick University Students
Year 12 students in Philosophy and Ethics have been working with students from Warwick University on how to make ‘difficult’ ethical choices.
They were given various ‘trolley’ exercises which involves picking and justifying who you would save or throw out of a trolley (if you had to make that choice). For example would you save your father or a scientist who has the cure for cancer who has the potential to save millions of lives’?
The students responded very well and there was lots of high level discussions and lively debate. This experience has given the students a valuable insight into life as a Philosophy student at University.
