Evolution & Race: Behavioral Genetics with Shirley Tilghman

Open to: All Full-time Grades Pre K-12 Classroom Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Join us for an exploration of new findings in genetics research. Professor Shirley Tilghman – Princeton University, will guide us on an exploration of human evolution and what it teaches us about notions of race.  Then, we will explore the new field of behavioral genetics: What is it, and what impact—both positive and negative—could it have on our society?

Participants are selected by application/nomination, and have some homework for each session.
