If you have visited my website, then you know that I am passionate about the usefulness of science fiction to teach science and to explore the ethical issues of both today and tomorrow.
I was pleased to come across this announcement in an email:

I want to thank Dave Anderson for bringing the conference to my attention. I expect lists of books appropriate for students and lesson plans to come out of this conference. If you go, let us know.
