Event description

Description

This class takes place over two days (Sat Jan 19th and Sat Feb 2nd). Please plan to attend both dates. But, you only need to sign up For the Jan 19th date and you will be enrolled for both dates.

Are human beings still evolving? You bet they are! In this class we’ll learn all about natural selection. How does it work? Why is it important? How is it still occurring today? We’ll use one of scientists’ favorite model organisms, fruit flies, to explore how natural selection works, how it makes some organisms more likely to survive and reproduce, and how it leads to evolution. We will also discuss how humans are interfering in and influencing this process through the use (or abuse!) of artificial selection and gene drives to change the natural world. No lab experience necessary.
