Need a Speaker?

We've got speakers!

Teaching evolution and climate change can be challenging in communities where many people distrust or reject the well-established evidence for these areas of science. NCSE works to help classroom teachers and informal science educators present these topics with confidence and support communities when threats to evolution and climate change education emerge.

Our talented staff can bring dynamic and unique presentations to your community, university, or conference. With deep expertise in the current state of evolution and climate change education, effective communication and teaching techniques, the history of anti-science efforts in the U.S., and more, an NCSE speaker can inform and inspire your community to improve how evolution and climate science are taught and communicated.
