Yale Pathhways to Science: Science in the News: Unraveling the Mysteries of Evolution

Science in the News: Flesh, Blood, and Bone: Unraveling the Mysteries of Evolution

Various Locations Across The New Haven Area

Open to the Public

Brought to you by Science Diplomats

Earth is home to a startling variety of life, from giant whales to tiny insects. But how did such a variety of life come about, and how did life change over time? The theory of evolution attempts to answer these questions, but evolution is not as simple as we once thought. Scientists can look at the Flesh of a bird and how it uses wings to fly, look at its Blood and determine how its genes have created the wind itself, and look at the Bones of its ancestors to determine how birds even learned to fly. This installment of Science in the News will describe the various answers to the question “What is Evolution?” and how it explains the myriad of life around us.
