Educator's Workshop

There will be a half-day educators’ workshop for science educators in the area (teachers, museum educators, homeschoolers, etc.). The workshop offers a unique opportunity for local educators to converse about how to present the subject of human evolution. Dr. Briana Pobiner, who leads the Human Origin Program’s Education and Outreach efforts, will discuss educational approaches developed by the Smithsonian with input from Dr. Connie Bertka, co-chair of the Smithsonian’s Broader Social Impacts Committee. The workshop gives educators an opportunity to express their experiences, conflicts, and apprehensions about teaching human evolution. The workshop will also introduce local teachers to the online, print, and other resources the Smithsonian will make available to them and their students, as well as a set of skull replicas that will be left in each community after the exhibit leaves for continued educational use.
