NCSE Science Teach-In Toolkit

Many organizations are hosting science teach-ins on or around April 22 which marks the March for Science, to highlight the importance of scientific education and literacy. A science teach-in is an information lecture, discussion, or series on any one of a variety of scientific issues that relate to the public interest, decision-making, and policymaking. Science teach-ins share knowledge and raise awareness about science and its value to society.

The National Council for Science and the Environment is offering free Science Teach-in Toolkits to the public to support their teach-in events. It includes a collection of planning resources and template documents. Visit  https://www.ncseglobal.org/ncse-science-teach-in-toolkit to access the materials and share resources.
