This will be MSU's 10th annual formal public debate on contemporary issues in science. Graduate students in the Department of Animal and Range Sciences will debate the question: "Resolved: The total replacement of beef by insects as a source of food will improve protein consumption in humans and will decrease harmful environmental effects."
The goal of the debate is to help students explore a controversial topic by presenting polarized arguments and weighing the strength of evidence. It is open and free to the public.
The debate will be held in Ballroom C of the Strand Union Building. It usually ends at 8:30 p.m. with the judges' comments.
Starting at 7 p.m. will be a set of related demonstrations, a poster session and a 90-second video prepared by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
