Parenting Beyond Belief Darwin Day Article

The Parenting Beyond Belief website has this article written by Rebekah Bennetch, of the Saskatoon Secular Family Network on the Saskatoon Darwin Day activities for the young and young at heart.

Last Saturday we marked the 202nd birthday of Charles Darwin by participating in a Darwin Day celebration.  Our parenting group coordinated the event with two other atheist/skeptic/freethinking groups in Saskatoon — in fact, the leader of the Saskatoon Skeptics was able to haveFebruary 12th officially declared “Darwin Day” in the province of Saskatchewan!

This was the first year that family activities were added to the Saskatoon celebration — our aim for Darwin Day was to get kids excited about learning more about science.  In preparing for the event, I sent out several emails to the members of the group and sought to recruit volunteers to lead different “stations” for the kids to explore, hands-on, various fields of science.
