Christopher Beachy Biology Professor

MINOT STATE UNIVERSITY BIOLOGY PROFESSOR CHRISTOPHER BEACHY didn't want the second annual DarwinDay to be a boring science lecture attended only by "science dorks" because even science dorks won't go to those
BEACHY said that biology department professors intend to make DarwinDay a signature event for the campus and see it as a good way to get high school students to the campus. The university invited high school science teachers from across the region to DarwinDay. On Friday morning there were high school students from Minot High School-Central Campus and Stanley High School in the audience and there was a seminar planned in the afternoon for high school science teachers on how to teach the theory of evolution in the classroom. This year's events were bigger than last year's, when there was only a birthday cake for DarwinDay. BEACHY hopes to keep making it a big day.
