Self-Driving Cars Debate Kit

Our latest Science Debate Kit, funded by the Institute of Physics, The Royal Institution, and Lloyd’s Register Foundation, asks the question:

Should our town centre be for self-driving cars only?

Covering relevant topics such as technology, physics, economics, and more; this Debate Kit helps students explore the societal, ethical, and factual issues around AI technology. The Kit includes eight characters with different viewpoints to encourage a balanced discussion around the question.

The Kit provides all you need to run a debate around the future of self-driving cars. The structure shows students how to build a discussion and back up their opinions with facts.


Based on character cards and lesson notes; the activity takes very little preparation and is designed to last around 50 minutes. Additional resources will be available with the Kit including an interactive quiz, a lesson PowerPoint, a student competition, and further reading and references on character’s facts.

The Debate Kits are free to schools in the UK.
