In 2016, with the end of NESCent, the Darwin Day Roadshow found a new home at the BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action co-sponsored by the Society for the Study of Evolution. It is now administered by Travis Hagey and Alexa Warwick.
In just the seven years we’ve been running the Darwin Day Roadshow, scientists and educators have already visited elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, colleges/universities and museums/science centers in 24 states. 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 24 states we will have visited so far…
