The Darwin Day Roadshow sends teams of scientists (typically graduate students, postdocs, faculty, or other professionals) and science educators to participating schools to talk to students about research in evolutionary science, what it takes to become an evolutionary scientist, the rewards and challenges of being a scientist, and why evolution is relevant to them.
Other activities have included public community presentations by scientists on evolution, screening an evolution-themed movie at a local library or community center followed by a discussion with our scientists, or any other ideas you might have. As a participating scientist, you will work with the roadshow staff and host teachers to design a series of events that best serve the needs of the local school and community.
If you're interested in becoming a 'Roadshow Scientist' bringing cutting edge evolutionary science to local schools and communities, fill out the following form and let us know why you want to be involved! We welcome earlier submissions, but the DEADLINE to apply for 2017 is WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21st, 2016 at 11:59PM EST.
After we have decided among the host schools to visit, we will match scientists with those schools and discuss logistics.
