Since the stunning news like human cloning hit the newspaper headlines, biotechnology once again captures the attention of the world. Today, biotechnology has tremendous applications in the areas of agriculture, environment, fuels and chemicals, food and drink, gene cloning, and medicine. On the other hand, biotechnology has triggered off different bio-ethical attitudes. As science educators, we are planning to introduce relevant and updated biotechnology elements into our Science curricula. This study is to gather and analyze relevant data in order to understand HKIEd teacher trainees’ attitudes and knowledge of biotechnology, so as to develop innovative biotechnology teaching materials/activities into our science curricula.
