British Scientists Take to the Streets

The Guardian has a story about the 18-month long celebration of evolution that is taking place in schools across England. This has been well-thought out:

People all over Europe will take part in a mass experiment to discover evolutionary changes to a species of snail; a major series of programmes is to be shown by the BBC; several books are to be published; and the Open University plans a new course on the subject.

Entries for a competition to design "Darwin's Canopy" – a piece of art to cover a ceiling in the Natural History Museum – will be unveiled this week, and the museum will hold a major exhibition on Darwin beginning in November.

I will be curious to see how well this works.
