Darwin Day Roadshow

The Triangle Center for Evolutionary Medicine (TriCEM) is gearing up for a "Darwin Day Roadshow" this February, and we want you to be a part of it!

To celebrate Charles Darwin's birthday (February 12th), scientists hit the road to bring evolutionary science to schools and communities. For 2022, we are offering in-person visits in North Carolina* and virtual visits anywhere in the United States. Our teams talk to students, teachers, and the general public about their research, career opportunities in science, and why evolutionary science is relevant to everyone. These visits are completely FREE, and we even leave behind a collection of resources to enhance the teaching of evolution in the classroom. What is a typical Roadshow visit like? We work with host teachers (i.e. you!) to design an event that best serves their school and community. There is no "typical" visit; both the topic and format are flexible to meet specific needs. How do I apply? You can learn more about the Roadshow at https://darwindayroadshow.wordpress.com. When you're ready, apply here by the deadline of midnight (EST) on Monday, November 29th, 2021. Since we work with host teachers to plan successful events, we are looking for enthusiastic applicants who will show creativity and initiative in working with us to coordinate the visit. *Note: We'll be following all relevant COVID-19 guidelines and may be required to switch to virtual visits depending on the pandemic's status in February If you have any questions, contact Meredith Spence Beaulieu (meredith.spence.beaulieu@duke.edu). Looking forward to visiting you soon on the Roadshow!
