Mr. Priest from Washington DC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Radical Evolution

My students need 25 copies of "Radical Evolution" to understand the world-changing impact from the GRIN technologies: Genetics, Robotics, Information Technology and Nanotechnology.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students need to understand the issues and potential impacts of the technologies they will be using and developing.

Our students are inner city youth with an interest in Engineering.

We are a technology magnet school in the nation's capitol. The students must apply to attend and thus we have an increased amount of parent involvement which other schools in the city do not.

My Project

"Radical Evolution" by Washington Post reporter Joel Gareau is a landmark work discussing the potential future impact of the GRIN technologies; Genetics, Robotics, Information Technology and Nanotechnology. This examines the way in which these technologies are advancing at an exponential rate and merging.

It is absolutely crucially important that our technology students be exposed to the ethical issues of the technologies they will not only be using, but developing in the very near future.
