The Darwin Day Roadshow is a way for scientists and educators to share their enthusiasm for evolutionary science with students, teachers and the general public. The Roadshow has traditionally taken place across the United States in the spring each year, to celebrate Charles Darwin’s birthday (February 12th).
Alma Solis visits an elementary school class in the 2020 Darwin Day Roadshow.
Applications from host teachers for the 2022 Roadshow are now being accepted and are due November 29, 2021. If you would like to participate in the Darwin Day Roadshow, check out our “How to Apply” page for more information. We’re excited to be offering in-person visits in North Carolina for this year’s Roadshow! That being said, we’ll be following all relevant COVID-19 guidelines and may be required to switch to virtual visits depending on the pandemic’s status in February. In addition to in-person visits in North Carolina, we are happy to do virtual visits to schools anywhere in the United States.
If you are a scientist interested in participating please fill out this form by November 29, 2021. We’re primarily seeking volunteers based in NC, but others are welcome to participate in virtual visits.
Even virtual visits can be exciting! Nick Grebe and Danae Diaz gave tours of their labs and research as part of the 2021 Darwin Day Roadshow.
The Darwin Day Roadshow is sponsored by the Triangle Center for Evolutionary Medicine (TriCEM).
