We first met Zack Kopplin over two years ago, when as a high school student in Baton Rouge, he launched a campaign to, quote, “repeal creationism” in response to a loosening set of rules regarding science curricula in Louisiana public schools that introduced the possibility of religiously-driven material in the science classroom. Today, as a student at Rice University, he continues his activism and is working with fellow activists to re-launch their campaign, calling for “a second giant leap for humankind.” He joins Welton this week to discuss the state of science education in Louisiana and beyond.
