DEADLINE APPROACHING (Nov. 27th)! Bring Evolution To Your School/Community For Darwin Day 2014! Interested in bringing cutting-edge evolutionary science to your school and community? Apply to be a stop on NESCent’s 2014 Darwin Day Roadshow. NESCent (The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center) is an NSF-funded evolution research center. To celebrate Charles Darwin’s contributions to science and society, we send our scientists on the road every year around “Darwin Day” (the annual, world-wide celebration of Darwin’s birthday on Feb. 12th) to talk to students, teachers and the general public about their research and career opportunities in science. Our focus is on small, rural communities (i.e., places that wouldn’t likely have a Darwin Day celebration if they weren’t a stop on our Roadshow) and any schools with traditionally under-served students. There is no cost to you, the teachers, and we’ll even leave you with a collection of evolution teaching resources! For more information, and to apply to have your school considered, please visit or contact Jory Weintraub (jory at nescent dot org). Applications are being accepted now through Friday, November 27th.

Hi Jory, I just applied to be a part of the roadshow. I am from Westland High School in Galloway Ohio. Please look at our school from a diversity perspective, we may be close to Columbus but our students do not have the resources to travel even to downtown Columbus that many of them can see from their back yards. We are certainly high needs, and an interesting mix of ESL and farm community students. Thank you, Shannon Clegg
