Serra Students Participate in Ethics Bowl Thru USCS
Serra students participated virtually in The National High School Ethics Bowl where they discussed ethical scenarios with teams from other high schools. They competed against Oasis, Kirby, and Stevenson high schools and were judged on the clarity of their ethical analysis, their inclusion of diverse perspectives and their collegiality in conversing with the other team
The Serra students did a great job analyzing such cases as "Not In My Backyard," which weighed the morality of installing solar panels to provide green electricity, while also destroying the beauty of a pristine desert landscape.
The Ethics Bowl format is rooted in ongoing dialogue and deliberation and is a series of two-way exchanges between equals that is designed to get students thinking, talking, and ultimately working together on complex moral issues.
The students, from left to right, are: Justin Estevez, Jorge Avalo, Howard Qin, Phillip Engtrom, Daniel Ordonez, and Dario Sanchez.
