The Crow Institute Outreach Committee works to advance the understanding of evolution in the general public and K-12 students through outreach events, public lectures, school programs, and teacher education. We strive to expose the public to strictly scientific evolutionary concepts, removing any overtones. Along with evolution, we value the continued outreach work of all science.
The Outreach Committee arranges workshops for teachers, engages the local community, and supports the Teaching Evolution Seminar, a group that meets weekly to discuss issues in the teaching of Evolution at the college and pre-college levels. For more information about what the Outreach Committee does, please see the Newsletter attched below. The committee also assists with Darwin Day, and maintains a set of resources for teachers on different topics in evolutionary biology. The committee is chaired by Deborah Rook. We are currently seeking members for this committee, and if you are interested in serving, please contact Deb.
