io9 Profiles Teen Atheist and Science Advocate Zack Kopplin

My friend Zack Kopplin, who has led the charge against the teaching of Creationism in Louisiana ever since he was in high school, is the subject of a glowing profile at io9:

For Zack Kopplin, it all started back in 2008 with the passing of the Louisiana Science Education Act. The bill made it considerably easier for teachers to introduce creationist textbooks into the classroom. Outraged, he wrote a research paper about it for a high school English class. Nearly five years later, the 19-year-old Kopplin has become one of the fiercest — and most feared — advocates for education reform in Louisiana. We recently spoke to him to learn more about how he’s making a difference.

In case you haven’t heard of him before now, he also spoke about his battles on Hardball back in 2011:
