Welcome, teachers, parents, and students!

You're invited to join Discovery Institute's first-ever virtual ID Education Day. Initially hosted by Great Northern University in Spokane, WA, the 2023-24 program is now available as an on-demand virtual event ideal for families, home school groups, and private school classrooms. Choose between a full-day, half-day, or 40-minute modular approach to fit your schedule.

In addition to 5 video lectures by our engaging presenters, we've also included classroom activities, discussion questions, and more resources for continued learning. See full event agenda below.

Join us to learn about the intelligent design of life's nanotechnology — from protein pumps and molecular machines to viruses and earthworm skin!
