Zack Kopplin campaigns to keep creationism out of public school science classrooms and pursued other church and state separation causes. As a high school student, he organized 78 Nobel laureates in opposition to the Louisiana Science Education Act, a law permitting public school teachers to introduce material to students that is critical of global warming hypotheses and the theory of evolution. He is currently studying history as a junior at Rice University in Houston, Texas. He has appeared on on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher and PBS’s Moyers and Company. His work has been widely reported in the press. His awards include the National Center for Science Education’s 2012 Friend of Darwin Award, the 2012 Hugh M. Hefner First Amendment Award in Education, and was named 2012’s Troublemaker of the Year. Kopplin is a columnist for The Guardian.
