Glenn Branch, Deputy Director of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), will be speaking at 7 p.m. today, June 22, in Fuller Lodge.
Sponsored by the Coalition for Excellence in Science and Math Education (cese.org)
Scientists overwhelmingly agree about the occurrence, causes and consequences of climate change. But the public is not so sure. And science education is suffering as a result.
Reviewing recent controversies over the place of climate science in state science standards and summarizing the results of a recent rigorous national survey of science teachers, Branch will explain how doubt and denial about climate change are affecting science education.
