Skill 2.7 What's the Evidence?
Produced by Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme, this activity helps students to critically evaluate scientific issues as they are portrayed in the media. Whilst in many cases little scientific evidence is presented in articles or television programmes, it does not necessarily follow that they are unreliable.
This activity gets students to think about statements in media reports that are unsupported by evidence and the questions they need to ask to verify the reliability of a report.
