SSE EVO 101 Workshop:

Hands on Evolution for K-12 Educators

Saturday, 22 June - All Day

Evolutionary biology is a dynamic and exciting field.  Science educators in the Salt Lake City area are invited to join evolutionary biologists and other science educators for “Evolution 101” – a one day workshop to be held at Snowbird Alpine Village and the Natural History Museum of Utah at the Rio Tinto Center on June 22.   Come learn about recent research in the field of evolution, talk with evolutionary biologists, and attend sessions that feature hands-on activities for teaching evolution to all ages.  Evolution is the unifying concept of biology and a centerpiece of science education standards BUT also at times one of the more challenging topics to teach.  How to teach it effectively? How to deal with student preconceptions? How to make it fun and relevant to their lives?  If you’ve been asking yourself questions like these, and are interested in updating your repertoire of evolution-related teaching materials, we invite you to attend “Evolution 101”.  
  • Talks, discussions and hands-on activities demonstrating effective and fun ways to teach evolution
  • FREE teaching resources and other give-aways for participants.
  • An opportunity to meet and chat with professional evolutionary biologists who both study and teach evolution.
  • Attend the Gould Award Lecture, given by the recipient of The Stephen Jay Gould Prize, awarded annually by the Society for the Study of Evolution to recognize individuals whose sustained and exemplary efforts have advanced public understanding of evolutionary science and its importance in biology, education, and everyday life in the spirit of Stephen Jay Gould.
  • Workshop participants are welcome to attend the Evolution 2013 meeting following the EVO 101 K-12 Workshop ($25 registration fee).
