The SSE Education Committee is pleased to announce the T. H. Huxley award, named in honor of Darwin's very public supporter, which recognizes and promotes the development of high quality evolution education resources. If you have an interesting project or educational activity to share consider applying for this award. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to apply. This award provides funding for an SSE member to present evolution education resources at the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT: http://nabt.org/) annual conference. This year’s NABT conference will be held Nov. 8-11, 2018 in San Diego, CA.
Proposals are evaluated on their evolution content, transferability or adoptability, and accessibility (for example, does not require specialized equipment, or is not limited to a particular location). Activities must be field tested with students. Field testing and collaborations with other instructors are encouraged. Finalists will be asked to provide a letter of support from a collaborator or PI.
To apply for the Huxley Award, please fill out the following form by April 6, 2018. To receive the award, you must be an SSE member. Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are strongly encouraged to apply. The award includes travel, registration and hotel expenses to present at NABT, and an SSE membership for graduate students and postdocs.
