The National Center for Science Education (NCSE), along with hundreds of allies across the country have designed training courses for citizens concerned about good science education.
The training will focus on real case studies from NCSE's experience, and it will be an opportunity for you and your fellow participants to discuss how to respond to attacks on good science education. Most importantly, the session will focus on how to build a network of local citizens who share your concerns.
Space is limited so register now through the GoToWebinar system. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
When a parent calls NCSE wondering why her child was sent home with a creationist pamphlet, or a teacher needs to respond to pressure from parents or administrators to drop lessons on climate change, or state legislators threaten to write science denial into state laws, NCSE relies on local voices and local experience to fight back. This is a chance to learn how to help your local teachers and students, strengthen science education in your community, and build a political movement for great science education.
If you can participate next Monday, November 25 at 5 PM, you'll have a chance to learn new skills and gain new insight into the defense of science in our public schools. This session is designed for anyone from experienced activists to novices.
Click through to the GoToWebinar site to learn more about the session, and to register.
Please feel free to share that link with any friends, neighbors, or colleagues you think might want to participate as well. Space for live participation in this first training will be limited, and the session will be recorded, so never fear if you can't participate next Monday.
There will be other training sessions in future months.
