Product Description
Science is value-free knowledge. Scientists can not do good work if science is forced into the service of other interests in society.

This case gives three historical examples of distorted science.(Three student projects provide additional examples of bad science):

Ideology -- The Soviet's and plant science, and the Nazi's and race science

Dogma -- The Young Earth Creationists and the dinosaurs

Moneyed Interests -- The tobacco companies and cancer research
