The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Online Ethics Center (OEC) sponsored its first Ethics Video Challenge to promote consideration of ethical issues in the research and work-life of scientists, engineers, and engineering students. The contest topic for 2012-2013 was Energy Ethics. The contest encouraged students to identify an ethical issue that is important for the nation’s energy future and to produce a video that examines the ethical aspects and presents approaches to address them.
The Video was expected to:
- Identify an energy ethics issue
- Explore the different views on the ethics issue
- Propose ways to address the issue
- Create a video no longer than 5 minutes to explore the issues and solutions
Teams of students from across the US submitted 18 videos to the competition. Congratulations to all of the winners! Please see below to access relevant information about the competition.
