  Description Recent interchanges between science and religion have sparked serious interest and no little heat. Science educators have an investment in these discussions, not just because they impact public school curricular policy ?- curious students and colleagues often raise questions whose answers require examining subtle distinctions. This workshop seeks to map out a particular approach to the discourse, an explorative juxtaposition of fundamental (and sometimes deeply implicit) characteristics of the two principal disciplines (science and theology). The intent is not to exhaustively survey the current literature, nor to demolish or advocate particular positions. The aim, rather, is to provide an opportunity for participants and presenters to interact together in a number of discussions and activities on this topic. These directed engagements will help construct a framework that the presenters feel will permit participants to address the issues more productively, and to open avenues to better help students develop critical thinking skills.
