          Rice University Student and Activist Zack Kopplin- April 1st 

speaking about his fight for sound science and against the teaching of creationism as science

     Mr. Kopplin began his activism against creationism as a Louisiana high school student,

when the state passed a law that would allow the teaching of creationism in public schools.

He has continued his opposition to teaching creationism in public schools and to taxpayer

funded vouchers that support the teaching of creationism in private religious schools.

   He has worked with Louisiana professor, intelligent design expert and national AU

board member Barbara Forrest and drafted a letter signed by 78 Nobel Prize laureates.

  He was interviewed this month by Bill Moyers on Moyers & Company — billmoyers.com
