Eugenie C. Scott
Eugenie C. Scott, the former executive director of NCSE and the current chair of its Advisory Council, will be presented with a Distinguished Service to Science Education Award from the National Science Teachers Association.
"When teaching scientific argumentation, selecting the wrong topic can impair — rather than increase — student understanding." That was the message of four members of NCSE's staff, Minda Berbeco, Mark McCaffrey, Eric Meikle, and Glenn Branch, in their commentary "Choose Controversies Wisely," published in the April/May 2014 issue of The Science Teacher.
Brian Alters, president of NCSE's board of directors, was profiled in the Orange County Register (April 1, 2014).
NCSE is pleased to announce that the latest issue of Reports of the National Center for Science Education is now available on-line.
