Teachers are invited to apply for an exciting opportunity to connect students with scientists via the annual Darwin Day Roadshow. The roadshow is a way for scientists and educators to share

their excitement about the science of evolution. Applications from host teachers are due DECEMBER 9, 2016, for the 2017 Roadshow! More details can be found on our website (darwindayroadshow.wordpress.com):

 

Each year around the time of Charles Darwin’s birthday (February 12), teams of scientists talk to students, teachers, and the general public about their research in evolutionary science, their career path, and

why evolutionary science is relevant to everyone. The roadshow has visited over 24 states so far since 2011!

 

We are currently planning for the 2017 Roadshow and are looking for local hosts, typically teachers! These hosts known as ‘Darwin Day Scholars’ work with the roadshow staff and scientists to design a set of activities that best serve their school and community. The deadline for host applications for the 2017 Darwin Day Roadshow is Friday, December 9, 2016.

 

To make the most of our visit, we strongly encourage you to share this opportunity

with neighboring teachers because geographically clustered applications have a better chance of being selected! After reviewing applications in mid-December, we will contact the winners, match these Darwin Day Scholars with visiting scientists, and then work out an itinerary for events in 2017.

 

Finally, we want to emphasize that this event is completely FREE to the host teachers and we will leave you with additional resources at the end of our visit thanks to generous support by the BEACON Center and the Society for the Study of Evolution.
