NCSE is proud to announce the launch of its new initiative aimed at defending the teaching of climate change. Like evolution, climate change is accepted by the scientific community but controversial among the public. As a result, educators trying to teach climate change, like their counterparts trying to teach evolution, are often likewise pressured to compromise the scientific and pedagogical integrity of their instruction.
NCSE is pleased to announce the sixth issue of Reports of the National Center for Science Education in its new on-line format.
There's a new way to help NCSE to defend the integrity of science education in the public schools. Organizations — including professional societies of scientists and educators, business associations, charitable foundations, and law firms — are now eligible to become Supporting Organizations of NCSE.
The chorus of support for the teaching of evolution continues, with a statement from the American Society of Naturalists, the oldest scientific society dedicated to the study of ecology, evolution, and behavior.
NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview (PDF) of Leslie Brunetta and Catherine L. Craig's Spider Silk: Evolution and 400 Million Years of Spinning, Waiting, Snagging, and Mating (Yale University Press, 2010).
