Creation vs. Evolution 2
Creation vs. Evolution II is an educational web site designed to help middle and high school-aged students develop critical thinking skills by participating in a debate about a controversial subject. The site has sections where students can research creation or evolution, then participate in an online debate in several formats. In the course of debating the subject, the students will be drawn into studying molecular biology, comparative zoology, paleontology, geology, theology, and the scientific method.
This is our second year of developing this site. In the past year, we were hard pressed to keep up with the volume of messages and poll results we received, but in the process, we learned how our visitors were using the site and what improvements they wanted. For example, we know that individuals, and sometimes entire schools, were using the site to research the subjects of creation and evolution for school reports. For them, we added many new articles and a search engine. We also know that the message board was a popular feature, so we added several new ways to debate and share ideas. Finally, we know that not everyone visiting the site agreed with everything we had to say on the subject, so we went back and edited the existing sections to make them more fair and accurate. We even added a third team member with a strong pro-evolution stance to balance the coverage.
