"I support intelligent design," Bachmann told reporters following her speech at the conference, CNN reports. "What I support is putting all science on the table and then letting students decide.
Bachmann used her speech to attack President Barack Obama's economic policies, telling the crowd that Obama "got a big F on his economic report card."
Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann explained her skepticism of evolution on Friday and said students should be taught the theory of intelligent design.
Bachmann said educators should be granted the flexibility - and the money - to make curriculum decisions at the local level.
"You survived Katrina! You survived President Obama's oil moratorium! There is nothing you cannot survive!"
Bachmann, a congresswoman from Minnesota, also proposed a major overhaul of the nation’s education system and said state administrators should be able to decide how they spend money allocated to them by the federal government.
