Kickstarter: Teaching evolution with animations, Stated Clearly

6

We teach the science of evolution through clear, friendly, entertaining animations.

WHY EVOLUTION?

Our mission is simple: to promote the art of critical thinking by exposing people from all walks of life, to the simple beauty of science.

Our first video series covers the interrelated topics of Genetics and Evolution. We feel these are the most powerfully engaging subjects that can be studied and understood through the scientific process. They have huge potential to excite curiosity and help people develop analytical minds.

Genetics and Evolution are two topics which are greatly misunderstood by the American public and the world. Genetics is often considered too complicated to bother studying, and Evolution is often rejected for perceived conflicts with personal beliefs. Both topics have been butchered by the media and popular culture which contributes to the public’s confusion.

Our teachers need better tools for teaching evolution, and curious free learners need good online resources for evolution.

      It won’t matter how you explain it until you find a way to pry the fingers from their ears and stop the annoying ululations- but I like the approach.

      You’re right about the pathetic grief stricken howling and wailing eminating from certain quarters, but something has got to be done and this is a very good resource which I hope goes viral and provides some leverage for science in general and Evolution in particular.

      I agree there is a group of people who are unreachable but by teaching in friendly simple language we have been able to reach a different crowd then is currently being reached by the more scholarly teaching methods.

      One home school Mom who uses our videos told us her 10-year-old daughter is now teaching all her friends how DNA works. That makes me happy.

      • Now that is an inspiring story.

    • Hahaha, tell me when you have a device like that ;). In the meantime we just gotta focus on those who are ignorant/undecided.
