The 1st ever WV Creation Science Fair is being organized by the Kanawha Creation Science Group and DefendingGenesis.org for the purpose of demonstrating that Creationists practice the the same operational science using the scientific method as anyone else and to encourage students to pursue careers in the sciences from a Biblical Creationist perspective.
This groundbreaking event is scheduled for Saturday, February 27, 2010 at the Rock Branch Independent Church Activities Building. Our keynote speaker for this event will be Dr G Charles Jackson of the Creation Truth Foundation.
Dr. Jackson has his bachelor’s degree in Biology, a master’s in Science Education, and a master’s in Environmental Biology from George Mason University. He earned his doctorate in Science Education at University of Virginia. He has taught science or education courses at both public and private schools to students in kindergarten through university level. His positions since 1980 have included five high schools, six community colleges, four colleges, and two universities in Virginia, Maryland, Vermont, and Tennessee. Dr. Jackson is a charter member of the East Tennessee Creation Science Association and a lifetime member of the Creation Research Society. He is also a member of American Mensa and an approved speaker by the Institute for Creation Research. He has been speaking to churches and school groups on this topic since 1975. In addition to being our inaugural keynote speaker, Dr Jacksom will serve as a science fair judge.
