In just the three years we’ve been running the Darwin Day Roadshow, NESCent scientists and educators have already visited elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, colleges/universities and museums/science centers in 16 states (Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oregon, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, California, Florida, Vermont, Indiana, Kentucky and North Carolina). We gave talks about our research, led students in hands-on activities that explore evolutionary principles and answered questions about evolutionary science, what it takes to become a scientist, and what some of the rewards and challenges are.
The map, below, shows the 16 states we will have visited upon the completion of the 2013 Darwin Day Roadshow this coming February…
To meet the Darwin Day Scholars (host teachers), students and NESCent scientists who participated in the Darwin Day Roadshow, place your cursor over “On The Road” (above) and select the individual states.
You can see pictures from the road in this slideshow….
