Kansas City Students Pack Auditorium for HHMI Lecture

Writing in the Kansas City Star, Linda Man reports that about 200 advanced biology students filled the auditorium at North Kansas City High School for the second of two days of Webcast lectures from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute on evolution.

“We’re mixing things that should not be mixed,” Susie Helwig, biology teacher and science chairwoman at North Kansas City High School told Man. “In Kansas, they want the science teacher to teach creationism, religion. Religion is something that should be taught in the home by the parents.

HHMI organizers estimate the number of teachers nationwide who signed up for the Webcast increased by 10 percent to 20 percent over last year, according to Man.
