In 2017 science continues to be under attack in the classroom and perhaps now to an even greater extent than before. Eugenie Scott will discuss the challenges of teaching evolution in the public schools and what we can do as activists, citizens and parents.

In 2005, Scott and other National Center for Science Education (NCSE) staff worked with Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the ACLU as part of the legal team consulting for the plaintiffs in the Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District case. This case concerned the teaching of intelligent design in public schools, and was decided by Judge John E Jones in favor of the plaintiffs and against the teaching of intelligent design.

Eugenie Scott is an American physical anthropologist, a former university professor and an activist opposing the teaching of young earth creationism and intelligent design in schools. From 1986 to 2014, Scott served as the Executive Director of the National Center for Science Education, Inc., a pro-evolution nonprofit science education organization. She holds a Ph.D. in biological anthropology from the University of Missouri. A human biologist, her research has been in medical anthropology and skeletal biology.

Scott currently serves on the National Board of Trustees of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
