Willimantic, CT

Dr. Wynn has lectured about science and science education in Puerto Rico, Canada, Malaysia, China, Australia, England, and Russia. His critically acclaimed science trilogy, The Five Biggest Ideas in Science (John Wiley & Sons), Quantum Leaps in the Wrong Direction: Where Real Science Ends and Pseudoscience Begins (Joseph Henry Press), and The Five Biggest Unsolved Problems in Science (John Wiley & Sons), has been translated into eleven languages and is required reading in a variety of college courses. He was invited to be the 2012 Darwin Day keynote speaker by Oregonians for Science and Reason.

Dr. Wynn is available to discuss his latest book, And God said, "Let there be evolution!": Reconciling the Book of Genesis, the Qur'an and the Theory of Evolution. Created in response to 9/11, this book addresses the continuing conflict between science teaching and religious beliefs, the dangerous effects of scriptural literalism, and heightened interest in interfaith initiatives.
