ABOUT THE NATIONAL BIOETHICS BOWL //
The National Bioethics Bowl is an annual tournament which brings teams from colleges and universities around the country to discuss ethical challenges in biomedicine and technology.
Before the Competition:
All teams have access to the case packet. The case packet contains 10 cases, each with 3 questions about the philosophical aspects of the case. Teams prepare arguments to support their responses to the questions and to respond to potential objections.
At the Competition:
At the competition, two cases are selected at random each round, and presenting teams must give a response to the chosen question within 10 minutes. Opposing teams present a rebuttal. Then, judges ask the presenting team questions, to which the presenting team responds. Here are the rules for the competition.
