We conducted a survey to see what people think about synthetic biology and its ethical aspects. We made a questionnaire in which the responders had to assign a 1-5 mark to the following statements:

A mark of 1 means that you fully disagree, a mark of 2 means that you disagree, a mark of 3 means that you have no opinion, a mark of 4 means you agree and a mark of 5 means that you fully agree.

The survey was conducted after the presentations at high schools and at the Kenniscafé. 56 people filled it in, in the graph you can see which answers where chosen how often.
