Welcome to Kate Carter
NCSE is pleased to welcome Kate Carter, NCSE's new Director of Community Science Education. Carter comes to NCSE from Harvard University, where she earned her Ph.D. in human evolutionary biology and taught human evolutionary biology. Her experience also includes conducting extensive informal science education activities in such venues as the Museum of Science, Boston, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and Harvard University. At NCSE, she will be directing and expanding NCSE's Science Booster Club program, which works to bring the science behind climate change and evolution to regular citizens. "I am firmly convinced that positive encounters with science produce community support for science education," she commented. "I am eagerly looking forward to the opportunity to help to bring authentic, accurate, and fun science activities to communities across the country."
