“How do we know what’s true?” “How do know what’s real?” “Can we say whether humans are special or just biological beings that happen to be roaming around on a planet for a while?” “Can robots ever equal or surpass us?”

The LASAR Centre conducts research and provides public seminars, workshops and resources exploring the relationships between science, religion and other disciplines in education. The workshops bridge disciplines and they explore not only the central question but also the strengths, relevance and limitations of the disciplines we consider. Some current examples include ‘How to make sense of evolution and creation’ for Year 6, ‘Can a robot care or only help people to care?’ for Year 9 and ‘Will we ever defy the laws of physics?’ for Year 12.
