Interested in bringing cutting-edge evolutionary science to your school and community? Apply by December 5th to be a stop on NESCent’s 2015 Darwin Day Roadshow.
NESCent (The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center) is an NSF-funded evolution research center. To celebrate Charles Darwin’s contributions to science and society, we send our scientists on the road every year around “Darwin Day” (the annual, world-wide celebration of Darwin’s birthday on Feb. 12th) to talk to students, teachers and the general public about their research and career opportunities in science. Our focus is on small, rural communities (i.e., places that wouldn’t likely have a Darwin Day celebration if they weren’t a stop on our Roadshow) and any schools with traditionally under-served students. There is no cost to you, the teachers, and we’ll even leave you with a collection of evolution teaching resources!
For more information, and to apply to have your school considered, please visit roadshow.nescent.org or contact Jory Weintraub. The application deadline has been extended! Applications are now being accepted now through Friday, December 5th.
