How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

As a Biology teacher, I haven't utilized Star Wars yet. However, this spring it occurred to me that when I teach DNA biotechnology & genetic engineering, certain scenes from Episode II would be particularly useful to show and discuss with my classes. These scenes could be used as an introduction to the idea of cloning humans- how it might be done, how viable it would be and how what is shown in the film contrasts with what is currently done to clone organisms.
