  1. Consider this statement: “It is morally wrong to eat animals.” Discuss it in pairs or small groups. Write down reasons both for and against the statement. How would lab-grown meat fit into this ethical dilemma?
  2. One of the main roadblocks to lab-grown meat is the “ick factor” — i.e. that people find the idea of eating it repulsive. Design an advert for a lab-meat burger which would convince people to give it a try. Make sure your language is as convincing as possible.
