It is a great idea to increase our focus on teach evolution in K-16, however, you may want to think further about the scaffolding and focus... there is an on-going discussion in evolution education about when and how to bring genetic variation into the picture, and the infographic here would go against some of current thinking (e.g. using the recipe metaphor and talking about "a gene for every body part".... We advocate starting with trait-variation and function and growing conceptual understanding from there.
