Test of Faith: Science and religion meet

The Test of FAITH film explores the relationship between science and religion, and the generally perceived idea that they are in conflict. Scientist believers discuss how they fit their faith and professional science work together.

Based on the film, the materials for schools have been developed by the Stapleford Centre, and are aimed at UK based GCSE and A level groups who are exploring the relationship between science and religion within the exam syllabus.

Each session includes background information to help the teacher in exploring this difficult but exciting part of the RE syllabus, discussion ideas to use in the classroom, photocopiable worksheets, and activities at a range of levels, including stretching extension activities. More information.

Topics: creationism, evolution, origins of the universe and the problems of evil and suffering.
