Well this is an interesting new thing. It’s a video called “Let’s Talk About Evolution,” that features a wide range of female scientists, doctors and researchers. Produced by Matt Shipman, David Wescott, Jamie Vernon, Kevin Zelnio and Andrea Kuszewski, the video allows “scientists to explain, in their own words, the importance of evolution to science — and the related importance of teaching evolution in schools,” according to TheSCOPEteam’s YouTube page. “Our goal is to convey the fact that evolution is an amazing, uplifting discovery that has served as the genesis of countless advances in many fields of science. We also wanted to highlight female role models in the science community.”
Some very intelligent, thought-provoking things are said but the group is still asking for further entries to add to the series. “Keep it positive: focus on the importance and wonder of evolution, and not on divisive name-callin,” they wrote. And if you’re interested in seeing what each of these women had to say un-edited, you can watch their full submission on TheSCOPEteam’s YouTube channel.
