Statement on the Teaching of Evolutionary Theory

The American Chemical Society (ACS) strongly supports the inclusion of evolution in K-12 science curricula, at an age-appropriate level, because evolution is central to our modern understanding of science. Evolutionary theory is not a hypothesis, but is the scientifically accepted explanation for the origin of species, and explains significant observations in chemistry, biology, geology, and other disciplines.

Members of the Columbus Section are actively involved in various activities concerning Chemical Safety and Regulatory Issues, Energy Consumption and Alternative Energy Sources, and Care for the Environment.

In this section we will maintain reports and links related to these issues.
