3rd Annual AIBS, BSCS, NESCent Evolution Science and Education Symposium

This year's theme: "Macroevolution: Evolution above the Species Level"

In collaboration with the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) and the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent), the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) is pleased to announce the 3rd annual evolution science and education symposium, "Macroevolution: Evolution above the Species Level." The one-day symposium will take place on October 14, 2006 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, at the annual meeting of the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT).

Macroevolution is the term applied to the evolutionary processes that describe the formation of new species. A common example of macroevolutionary research is the work conducted by paleontologists.

The AIBS/BSCS/NESCent evolution symposium was established three years ago to improve the quality of science education. The symposium provides classroom teachers with an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in evolution science from leading evolution scholars. Science teachers attending the symposium as part of the NABT annual meeting will receive tips, classroom resources, and practical training in ways to incorporate the research findings presented during the symposium into their classroom lessons.

The BSCS a Colorado Springs-based non-profit organization that works to improve all students' understanding of science and technology by developing exemplary curricular materials, supporting their widespread and effective use, providing professional development, and conducting research and evaluation studies will provide teachers with hands-on exercises and resources.

Symposium speakers will include:

  • Dr. Philip Gingerich is Professor of Geological Sciences and Director of the Museum of Paleontology at the University of Michigan. Additionally, Dr. Gingerich holds faculty appointments in the Department of Anthro
