UCMP supports teaching of evolution (cont.)
1) September Kick-off Events
There are two kick-off events scheduled, one in the Bay Area and the other in Los Angeles. Their purpose is to bring together K16 science teachers, science educators, curriculum specialists, administrators, education board members, scientists, and representatives from the State Department of Education to preview the WGBH series on evolution (see calendar entry) and to learn about available resources, future events, and current research in evolution. The events also include a town meeting format to discuss the importance of teaching evolution in our classrooms and the issues surrounding that teaching.
To register for these free events, visit the CSTA website.
