Our first Science on the Hill! Thanks to all who came out as we discussed Charles Darwin's infamous voyage on the HMS Beagle. What a way to kick off our science cafe program with one of the most influential contributions to science. We learned about the clues Darwin used to discover the mechanism behind evolution, the story behind Darwin's quest, the people involved, and the scandal that surrounded it.
Our first talk featured, Dr. Scott McRobert, Professor of Biology at Saint Joseph's University, who has expertise in evolutionary biology, animal behavior, ecology, endangered species, genetics and environmental science.
