AIBS conducts a number of activities to support the teaching of evolution in schools and to ward off efforts to teach creationism in science classes or distort the teaching of evolution. One of these AIBS activities is a joint project with the National Center for Science Education (www.ncseweb.org) to establish and maintain an e-mail list server for each U.S. state, for Canada, and for other select areas.
The e-mail list servers allow scientists, teachers, and other interested parties to be in touch with each other locally, nationally, and internationally. They can facilitate support groups for teachers trying to teach evolution in a difficult atmosphere. They can also permit rapid communications and grass-roots activity when school boards or legislatures are considering policies that will promote the teaching of anti-evolutionary ideas in science classes.
Volunteers serve as list server managers. Most U.S. states now have list server managers, as does Canada. If your state does not appear on the list, that means no one has volunteered to run the list server. Please consider volunteering. The time commitment should not be burdensome. Contact Robert Gropp in the AIBS Public Policy Office at rgr...@aibs.org if you would like to be involved. Guidelines for managing the list servers are provided by AIBS and the National Center for Science Education.
AIBS has also established a meta-level list server to allow the managers of each state and country list server to communicate with each other and with AIBS/NCSE staff. Managers should contact Robert Gropp to subscribe.
