Darwin Day 2013 is Approaching!

Attention teachers, administrators, educators and science enthusiasts: do you want to bring cutting-edge evolutionary science to your school and community? Who wouldn't?! Check out NESCent's 2013 Darwin Day Roadshow and apply to be a part of it.

NESCent (The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center) is an evolution center funded by the National Science Foundation. To celebrate Charles Darwin's contributions to science and society, NESCent sends their scientists on the road every year during "Darwin Day" (the annual, worldwide celebration of Darwin's birthday, Feb. 12) to chat with students, teachers and the general public about their research and career opportunities in science. Talk about getting inspired about science - this will do it! If you're selected, there's no cost to you and the NESCent scientists will even leave you with a collection of evolution teaching resources. I know, can it get any better?

For more information, and to apply to have your school considered, visit or contact Jory Weintraub at You only have until Nov. 9 to apply!
