Given the rapid advances of science, it is ever more important to raise young people’s awareness of the ethical dilemmas such knowledge brings, so that they can make informed decisions on issues that will affect them. As a result, the UK science syllabus for ages 11-18 has changed to include ethical issues. But science teachers are uncomfortable teaching ethics and many are unpractised in the necessary teaching techniques. The Bioethics Education Project (BEEP http://www.beep.ac.uk) and The Physics & Ethics Education Project (PEEP http://www.peep.ac.uk) have been created to fill this need. Both are online resources to support the teaching and learning of scientific issues that have a significant ethical component. This paper reports on the development and evaluation of the websites, and the challenges to science education culture posed by the rise of online learning and by the new pedagogic approach required to engage students in discussion of the social and ethical issues that arise.
