And the Theme for Ci 5.0 Is…

And it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for! We’re excited to announce the theme for Ci 5.0. But first—a little background. Every year we choose a new theme to structure our various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) activities around. This theme has to meet four criterion:

  1. Involve all four areas of STEM to show how different fields come together to solve a common problem,
  2. Have a biblical apologetics focus,
  3. Be relevant to the 21st century,
  4. And have a broad interest.

We debated back and forth for quite a while last fall, trying to decide which of our proposed themes met these four criterion the best and would work well for this year. And, finally, after much deliberation we settled upon the theme. But before I tell you (that would be too easy!) I’ll give you some clues and maybe you can guess it. Here are some of the questions we’ll be seeking to answer:

  • Plastic (and the overuse of it) is a big problem in today’s world. How are some ways we can reduce our reliance on plastics?
  • What does it mean to have “dominion over the earth” (Genesis 1:28)?
  • What is stewardship?
  • We hear an awful lot about climate change. How should we view this in a biblical worldview?
  • Is clean energy the way of the future?
  • Do people or the environment come first in policy making?
  • Stephen Hawking thinks we need to colonize another planet in the next century, or we will go extinct. Is this the best method to deal with the problems facing us?

If you haven’t guessed it already, our theme this year is…earth science! Last year took us to outer space, but this year we’re going to stay a little more “down to earth” as we look at some of the big problems your generation must face and how STEM—and a biblical understanding of the world around us and our place in it—can help us solve those problems.

We’re excited and we hope you are too! Have suggestions for what questions we should try and answer? Go on Facebook and let us know! We’d love to hear from you!
