For the past few years, the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture has hosted “ID Education Days” in both Seattle and Dallas. These events offer home and private school students and educators a chance to meet and hear from some of the leading scientists and scholars in the ID movement. Just as importantly, it’s a chance for these high school students to experience true academic freedom — where established theories are still open for critique based on new scientific discoveries, and new theories are given a fair hearing in their place. With the ever-increasing turnout, we’ve found this to be a hugely successful event!
This year, for the first time ever, our Intelligent Design Education Day comes to Richmond, Virginia — thanks to the sponsorship of the Richmond Center for Christian Study. Come hear from biochemist Michael Behe, Senior Fellow of the Center for Science and Culture, as he presents on the emerging research inspiring his forthcoming book — Darwin Devolves. Listen to professor of science Paul Nelson as he shares the latest research on “orphan genes” and the implications on our understanding of evolution and intelligent design. Whether you’re new to the discussion or a veteran-ed student of ID, there’ll be something to learn and be inspired by at this event – open to the public.
