NCSE bids farewell to Robert Luhn, who joined NCSE as its first Director of Communication in 2008. Bringing his decades of expertise as a technology and environmental journalist to the job, Luhn was instrumental in raising NCSE's profile among traditional and new media and in connecting journalists with NCSE staff.
NCSE was featured in Climate Fwd: — The New York Times's e-newsletter "with stories and insights about climate change" — for February 21, 2018: "climate change is presented as a controversial subject in a significant number of American classrooms, according to research from the National Center for Science Education."

NCSE is pleased to announce that the latest issue of Reports of the National Center for Science Education is now available on-line. The issue — volume 38, number 1 — is the ninth issue in the newsletter's new, streamlined, and full-color format.
