#bwtakeson #19

The Laboratory for Civic Engagement "takes on" challenging topics for critical thinking, thoughtful evaluation, and engaging discussion.  Each week, we will be posting in our Twitter account (@PSUBW_ENGAGE) a question that we hope you will respond to either in Twitter, in conversations around the photocopier, or through personal reflection.

When responding to the question, please include the hashtag #bwtakeson

#bwtakeson ... Are genetically modified crops the solution for Africa?

This week's question was drawn from the stories on The Encyclopedia of Earth, "Genetically modified crops in Africa" (LINK), BBC News, "Could GM crops help feed Africa?" (LINK) and The Seattle Times, "Bill Gates' support of GM crops is wrong approach for Africa" (LINK).
