KS3/4 Science - Big Screen Science: Stem Cell Controversy

Description

Craig McMillan, a wheelchair user, investigates the moral and ethical dilemmas of stem cell therapy and questions whether it will ultimately affect his own disability.

Craig, who started using a wheelchair following a rugby accident at Ballycare High School, Belfast, is filmed by a group of ten 14- and 15-year-olds from his former school.

The students are the winners of the Northern Ireland round of the Big Screen Science competition which is run by young people's filmmaking initiative, First Light, and supported by the Wellcome Trust.

The students - who made the film with the help of a professional filmmaker and local scientist - had never met Craig but felt that his involvement in the film would give it greater impact and meaning.
