CSICOP – Brief Article
* CSICOP Fellow Eugenie Scott received the second Bruce Alberts Award for Distinguished Contributions to Science Education at the 39th American Society for Cell Biology Annual Meeting in Washington December 11-15, 1999. The Award, presented by Alberts, President of the National Academy of Sciences and a faculty member at the University of California, San Francisco, recognizes Scott’s “dedication to protecting the teaching of evolution through writing, speeches, media appearances, and importantly, presentations to school boards, teachers, churches, and parents.” Scott, a physical anthropologist, is executive director of the National Center for Science Education. She recently completed a three-year term as a member of the CSICOP Executive Council. She wrote “The ‘Science and Religion Movement’: An Opportunity for Improved Public Understanding of Science?” in the SKEPTICAL INQUIRER’s July/August 1999 special issue on science and religion.
