  1. evolution videos—awesome job again Jory–hope all is well.I have sent this out to other science teachers. Perhaps send it to NABT and ask them to send it out as well. Or put a link on their website. I will try and incorporate some into the evolutionary medicine workshop at the NSTA national convention here in Los Angeles in March.
