Several institutions in Houston are participating in an event called “Darwin 2009”. Participating institutions are working together to offer events related to natural selection, evolution, and genetics. The activities take place during 2009, which marks the bicentennial of Darwin’s birth and the sesquicentennial of the publication of “On The Origin of Species”.
A few events of interest:
- 2/7/09–Darwin Day at the Houston Museum of Natural Science
- 2/11/09–Politics of Teaching Evolution in Texas (panel discussion)
- 2/24/09–Lecture by Francisco Ayala
- And much more!
