NCSE is pleased to announce the next of a new series of on-line workshops aimed at broadening and deepening the networks that make our work possible. The next workshop focuses on media outreach: the panelists will discuss their own experiences, and share advice and resources to help citizens like you plan for media outreach and be effective spokespeople for science.
Webinar conducted December 18, 2013.
NCSE conducts monthly webinars (interactive online trainings), and archives those trainings for later viewing. These trainings will cover a range of topics, from media skills, lobbying, and advocacy using social media, to skills for building a local or statewide group of "citizens for science" and for recruiting new members and moving them into leadership positions.
Webinar conducted November 25, 2013.
Description: What can citizens like you do to respond when science education comes under attack? How can you and other concerned citizens organize to fight back? What can you do to prevent attacks on science education in your community?
Around Halloween, thousands of science teachers, science professors, and graduate students received copies of a slick packet attacking climate science.
The Texas state board of education is preparing to adopt textbooks, and anti-science ideologues want to hijack the process. Creationists and climate change deniers appointed as reviewers by extremists on the board have flooded publishers with demands for corrections of supposed factual errors — corrections that would make the books less accurate. The board of education needs to hear from you at their meeting on Tuesday, September 17.
The Kentucky state board of education adopted Next Generation Science Standards this June, preparing the Bluegrass State to replace standards which earned a D in 2012 with a new set of model national standards. Unfortunately, these strong new standards are under attack. The state legislature must approve the new standards, and ideological opponents of evolution and climate education are gearing up. A key vote is expected to come next Wednesday, September 11.
