Mrs. Lodes Named as Kirk Teacher Fellow at Darwin Day

By Dr. Rose Davidson, STEM Coordinator
The February 9th event on the Washington University Danforth Campus was timed to the anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth – his 210th this year. After a presentation by John Hawks, a paleoanthropologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Mrs. Katie Lodes was announced as the new Kirk Teacher Fellow. Over the next three years Mrs. Lodes will take on the role of facilitating the evolution book club and planning the evolution education events. The Kirk teacher fellowship is named for David and Marilyn Kirk, longtime members of the Washington University community, whose generous endowment makes the Institute for School Partnership’s evolution education program possible. That includes not only the teacher fellowship, but the annual Darwin Day celebration and an evolution education book club.
