Intelligent Design Education Day

A Field Trip Opportunity
Past Event March 15, 2017 Seattle Pacific University - Seattle, WA
Have you wanted to teach your students about intelligent design (ID), but don’t know where to start? Do you already incorporate intelligent design into your curriculum, but would relish a chance to meet the scientists at the forefront of the theory in person? Have you been looking for interactive ways to interest your students in intelligent design?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we invite you and your students to Intelligent Design Education Day, hosted by Discovery Institute on Wednesday, March 15. This is a special opportunity for private school teachers and home educators to bring students on a day-long field trip event to learn more about intelligent design and interact with leading scientists and scholars in the ID movement. At the end of each session, students will be given a chance to ask questions of the speakers.

This year's lecture topics will include:

  • A broad overview of intelligent design;
  • Themes from the new book, Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition that Life is Designed, presented by the book's author, molecular biologist Douglas Axe;
  • Arguments for why the human eye cannot be explained by Darwinism, presented by molecular and cell biologist Jonathan Wells, author of Icons of Evolution and the forthcoming Zombie Science;
  • Scientific reasons why humans are exceptional and unique from animals, presented by developmental biologist Ann Gauger, co-author of Science & Human Origins.
