Children have plenty of access to religious texts and pseudoscience. While exposure to these things happens mostly in the home, myths and bad science seem to seep their way into the public school system as well. Even when teachers aren't explicitly teaching this stuff, they are often ignoring or giving unsatisfactory answers to younger children about science and the origins of life and the universe.
Kids are exposed to religion early, but unfortunately the same is not true of evolution.
Titans for Reason wants to change that.
Our goal is to donate books about evolution and the origins of the universe to local elementary schools and public libraries so that children will have access to this information anytime and for free.
For our initial round of this book drive, we have chosen three books to appeal to the various styles and ages among elementary schools.
Magic of Reality by Richard Dawkins
Our Family Tree: An Evolution Story by Lisa Westberg Peters
Older Than the Stars by Nancy Davis.
Our goal: To provide as many of these books to as many elementary schools and public libraries that we can reach. We can only do this with your support. All funds generated will go to purchasing and donating these books.
