Evolution Education

Evolution Education is a project organized by the Cox Lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Virginia. They are evolutionary biologists and educators who advocate for real collaborations between scientists and teachers to develop new, inquiry-based models for education in (and out of) the middle- and high-school science classroom. The program is based on three core principles:

· K-12 science education is failing to teach evolution unequivocally as a central principle in biology

· Students learn science best by doing actual science

· Teachers become more effective educators when they participate in authentic scientific research
