a bible, theology, politics, news, networking, and discussion site
I've got a question to pitch to you all. I am currently beginning the process of developing workshops for high school kids regarding science and faith in God. Since I am neither a biologist, geologist nor a theologian I am not going to deal with areas such as old/young earth or evolution versus creation. I do not have the skill, and I also feel that these discussions are covered elsewhere.
My aim with these workshops is to explore the relationship between science and faith, the history and practice of science (as a human endeavour), and to get kids thinking about their worldviews. The idea is for them to get past the idea that science has somehow disproved God and reach an understanding that faith in God is intellectually feasible, and that science can enhance faith in God; also that belief in God brings a new richness to scientific discovery.
I also want to give kids tools to investigate further in this area and any related area.
With that in mind:
Do you have any ideas for engaging activities (especially ones using props) that we could incorporate into the workshops?
Do you know any good websites, especially ones that are teenager friendly, for their further investigation?
Do you have any suggestions on other angles we could take besides what I have talked about here?
What are your opinions, thoughts, likes, dislikes, around this issue.
The more info and ideas the better, I want as much input as I possibly can get.
(oh and also, pray for this ministry, that God would lead it and take it where He wants it to go)
