University of Wisconsin to celebrate Darwin Day | Community Spirit
The University of Wisconsin celebrates Charles Darwin's birthday hosting its annual series, Darwin Day. The event is a series of lectures and screenings commemorating evolution and biodiversity.
The series kicks off Thursday Feb. 14 with a Valentine's Day-themed screening at Union South, titled "Love and Sex in the Natual World." The weekend follows with several talks on natural selection from visiting lecturers.
A biodiversity-themed scavenger hunt is planned for families Saturday at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery.
A teacher's workshop begins Thursday morning to help science teachers integrate evolution into their curriculum.
