Darwin Day Roadshow

TriCEM is hitting the road in 2021 for the Darwin Day Roadshow!


What is the Darwin Day Roadshow?

To coincide with Darwin’s birthday on February 12th, scientists travel across North Carolina to bring evolutionary science to schools and communities. There is no cost to teachers or schools, and we even leave behind a collection of evolution teaching resources. New for this year, we will also be opening up the Roadshow to include virtual visits to schools anywhere in the United States.

What is a typical Roadshow visit like?

We work with host teachers to design an event that best serves their school and community. There is no “typical” visit; both the topic and the format are flexible to meet specific needs.

Due to this year’s unique circumstances, there’s a high likelihood that all visits will be done virtually. For North Carolina applicants, we may be able to do in-person visits depending on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, plus relevant travel and group event policies and guidelines.

How do I participate?

First, learn more about the Darwin Day Roadshow by visiting our Roadshow website.

If you’re a K-12 educator and would like your school to be a stop on the Roadshow, you can apply here by the deadline of midnight on Monday, December 7th, 2020.

If you’re a grad student, postdoc, or researcher that would like to join us on the road to talk to students, teachers, and the general public about your research, evolution, and career opportunities in science, contact Meredith Spence Beaulieu.
