While taking headshots of the staff at the National Center for Science Education, I had the pleasure of meeting a group of amazing individuals and chatting them up on the subjects of teaching climate change and evolution in American schools. NCSE, a not-for-profit organization, works to support schools and families concerned with keeping evolution and climate science in public school science education. I learned about this organization through my aunt and uncle who regularly volunteer for NCSE and soon I was a facebook follower and big fan. For those in education, you can find great resources here! And for those who want to support the cause, join here.
Meet Mark McCaffrey. Mark is a leader in science education policy and climate literacy. His recently published book “Climate Smart & Energy Wise: Advancing Science Literacy, Knowledge, and Know-How” is a great up-to-date resource for educators and anyone helping to shepherd in the next generation, growing up in the age of climate change. Buy it here. Or here.
